Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All (SSH4A) - Nepal

SNV in Nepal

Project Description

SNV’s SSH4A project aims to accelerate progress in sanitation and hygiene by strengthening professional and organisational capacity of local governments, private sector and stakeholders to develop a sustainable service delivery model at scale in their district area. It integrates sanitation demand creation, supply chain development, behaviour change communication and governance. This project will build on the success of the first phase of the CS WASH Fund and deepen and expand activities in the Mid-Western Region with a focus on strengthening post ODF support mechanisms and sustainability whilst responding to the Government’s priority districts in the Terai eco-zone (the lowlands) by adapting the approach to this new context.

Project Location

The project location is within eight rural districts and 2 periurban centres in Nepal. This includes further developing activities in 3 districts (Jumla, Kalikot and Dolpa) and expanding to new districts (Rukum, Rolpa and Salyan) in the Mid-Western Region and expanding and adapting to 2 new districts (Sarlahi and Mahotari) in the Terai eco-zone of the Central Region as prioritised by the government. In addition to sanitation coverage issues, the Mid-Western districts are challenging in terms of terrain, poverty and remoteness. The additional Terai districts are in the low-lying southern belt bordering India typified by high population density, low sanitation coverage and flooding.
