Project objectives
Provision of a strategic review of DFID Nepal’s engagement in WASH, how DFID Nepal should continue to engage, over and above its existing support to GWS, and through the health and education sector (which comes to an end in 2015) and local governance programmes.

Project description

As DFID moved into a new Operational Plan (OP) planning period and in the run up to the Resource Allocation Round, we believed it was important to review the situation on the ground and provide an up to date picture and evidence-based assessment of the needs and the planned response of various partners to validate the 2007 assessment recommending low engagement in the sector. This review was intended to inform DFID Nepal with respect to its future engagement in the sector during the next OP period.

Project data

The 2011 WASH sector status report, indicated that per capita budget allocation was approximately NRs, 1,700 and it was estimated that in order to meet the national goal of 100% coverage of safe water by the year 2017, a per capita expenditure of approximately NRs. 3,500 was required, which was equivalent to NRs.7.5 billion per annum. Over the last six years the average per annum sector public investment was around NRs 3.8 billion which was half of the requirement in the sector.
