WASH Program Aligning for Action - Sanitation and Water for All in the Context of Climate Change in Nepal

he Government of Nepal has set its targets to achieve universal
access to improved water supply and sanitation by 2017. According
data from the 2011 Census, access to improved water supply and
sanitation is 85% and 62% respectively. This shows that Nepal
has surpassed the MDG commitments both on water supply and
sanitation. However, huge disparities among the regions, districts
and villages prevail. For example, there are still 28 below MDG target
of 53% on sanitation (of which 9 districts have below 30% coverage)
and 17 districts with water supply below the MDG target of 73%. In
addition, there are huge challenges regarding quality, sustainability
and functionality of these services even among the districts that
have achieved national and MDG targets. While challenges exist for
providing basic services in rural Nepal, the steep trend of urbanization
in the country poses a growing challenge for WASH service delivery in
urban areas. Inadequate treatment of urban effluents has significantly
increased environmental pollution. There are significant water quality
concerns in both rural and urban areas and no compliance to Nepal’s
own water quality standards (2005).
