Annual Report 2009 outlines the key achievements made by the UN-HABITAT’s WAC Programme in India, Nepal and Pakistan between January and December 2009 with support from the WSTF and significant contribution from governments, partners and local communities. The WAC continued to actively support and engage in the pro-poor urban water and sanitation (WATSAN) governance sector. The UN-HABITAT’s WAC Programme’s pro-poor urban WATSAN governance component aims to strengthen the capacity of local authorities, utilities and governments to institutionalize the pro- poor WATSAN governance at the local level. Support is provided by developing information bases as well as by demonstrating WATSAN services to the urban poor.
The UN-HABITAT’s WAC Programme’s urban water demand management component aims to provide technological options to regular water supply and to strengthen the capacity of various stakeholders to advocate and promote such alternatives. Harvesting rainwater, utilizing traditional sources, and bottling water are the major interventions promoted. The integrated urban environmental sanitation component aims to demonstrate an integrated approach to total environmental improvement through the involvement and efforts of local communities. This initiative promotes locally-managed water supply systems, private and community- managed toilets, on-site sanitation, and hygienic behavior education and builds the capacity of users to sustain services effectively. The UN-HABITAT’s WAC Programme’s human values- based water sanitation and hygiene education (HVWSHE) component aims to promote the ethical use of water by providing values-based information on water, sanitation and hygiene. HVWSHE inspires and motivates behavioral change leading to the wise and sustainable use of WATSAN facilities.
The UN-HABITAT’s WAC Programme’s water quality improvement component aims to sensitize stakeholders about the importance of safe drinking water by promoting various technologies as well as by establishing a monitoring programme for assessing water quality and proposing options for improving quality. Social inclusion and gender mainstreaming are one of the major cross-cutting themes of the UN-HABITAT’s WAC Programme. Every project makes an effort to integrate these issues in order to ensure the equitable and justifiable distribution of the services and facilities provided irrespective of gender, age, caste, religion, and other differences.
The capacity-building component of the UN- HABITAT’S WAC Programme aims to build the technical and management capacities of UN-HABITAT’s WAC Programme partners, institutes, and local communities in the WATSAN sector in order to foster efficient service delivery and to institutionalize WATSAN governance. Research and studies in the WATSAN sector aims to identify and disseminate innovations with widespread applicability to WATSAN improvements.
