The Ambassador of Finland visited RWSSP-WN

27.11.2016

RWSSP-WN was privileged to welcome the Ambassador of Finland, Mr. Jorma Suvanto, to Terai between the 7th and the 9th of November. The visiting team included the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland (MFA) representatives Senior Adviser Ms. Sanna Takala and Program Officer Ms. Jetta Kuivalainen, and the Embassy of Finland representatives including Development Counsellor Mr. Jukka Ilomäki and Development Cooperation Adviser Dr. Chudamani Joshi.

 

The team visited the rehabilitated Damar Water Supply Scheme in Ratanpur VDC, Nawalparasi district, and explored the sanitation efforts in Baluhawa VDC, Kapilvastu district. The program also included visits to schemes in Amarapuri and Devchuli municipalities that were constructed during the earlier Finnish supported project in what is largely remembered in Nepal as the Lumbini project or as the Finnida project. These schemes are now involved in the Nawalparasi and Palpa Districts Sustainable Water Supply and Sanitation Project (NAPA WASH). 

 

NAPA WASH is an NGO-based project funded by MFA and implemented through Waterfinns and Centre for Appropriate Technology Nepal. The project aims to strengthen the management, operation and maintenance of selected water and sanitation schemes in Nawalparasi and Palpa and contribute to enhanced knowledge in water supply functionality challenges in Nepal.

 

During the visit, the Ambassador discussed with numerous stakeholders such as Water and Sanitation User Committee members, District WASH Advisers, service users and DDC representatives. In addition to the information sharing, the visit enabled the Ambassador and the MFA representatives to explore in real life the environment and realities, in which RWSSP-WN operates in.

Syangja has been ready to declare open defecation free for more than two years, since the approval by the Regional WASH coordination committee. The declaration finally took place on 9th January 2016, as 32nd district in Nepal. Honorable Minister, Som Prasad Pandey, Ministry of Industry, Government of Nepal, as chief, inaugurated the ODF ceremony. Stakeholders from the national level to Water User and Sanitation Committee members participated in rally around Syangja Bazar as well as the formal program.

 

All guests emphasized the importance of sanitation and hygiene in their speech, and committed to support the campaign for total sanitation. A road map to Total Sanitation has been set in the District Post ODF Strategy, in which all WASH stakeholders including political parties make their commitment to declare Syangja as a total sanitation district. RWSSP-WN has been supporting Syangja´s sanitation movement since B.S. 2065 through DDC Syangja, first for ODF and now for Total Sanitation campaigning. For the declaration ceremony, RWSSP-WN II provided both financial and technical support as requested by DWASHCC/DDC.

Congratulations to Rolpa for District ODF!

Rolpa district declared open defecation free (ODF) on 24th December 2015, being the 28th district to do so. The Vice President, honorable Shree Nanda Bahadur Pun was the chief guest of the ODF ceremony. Parliament members, members of National Sanitation Hygiene Coordination Committee, representatives of the offices of GoN, donor agencies, leaders of political parties, district based organizations and community people of Rolpa participated in the ceremony.

 

The office of District Development Committee, Water and Sanitation Sub-division Office, RWSSP-WN II, Red-Cross Society etc. have been supporting the sanitation promotion program in the district. As the head and the secretary of D-WASH-CC, DDC and WSSDO have key roles in decisions and implementation of the sanitation program. On top of that, RWSSP-WN II has been a key support agency for improved sanitation in Rolpa. At the time when RWSSP-WN II started to support sanitation initiatives in Rolpa, only four VDCs had declared ODF.

 

RWSSP-WN II has supported various district and VDC level capacity building events to train the trainers and to aware people on sanitation and hygiene, provided VDC rewards after declaring ODF, supported in the preparation of information, education and communication materials etc. Now the project will continue the support towards Total Sanitation. This includes support to prepare a Post ODF strategy for the district and post ODF plans for VDCs.

Congratulations to Gulmi!

12th July 2015

Gulmi District declared Open Defecation Free on 11.07.2015. There are 75 Village Development Committees and one Municipality in Gulmi District, which had already declared ODF following the rule and regulation given in the Sanitation and Hygiene Master Plan-2068.  Honorable vice President of the country, Mr. Pramananda Jha, was the chief guest. D-WASH-CC decided in fiscal year 2067/2068 to target to declare district ODF by 2072, which became success today, after construction of around 30,000 new household toilets during the past five years. 

 

Now there are 65,000 households in the district with household toilets. During the sanitation momentum, six public toilets were constructed and a few are under construction. RWSSP-WN II, through the Local Government (DDC), has been supporting the movement since last year by building capacity, conducting sanitation and hygiene promotional activities, and helping the district to prepare ODF plan and strategy. At the time when RWSSP-WN II started its support in Gulmi, only eight VDCs had declared ODF. Similarly, the project has planned to continue its support for the preparation of District and VDC Total Sanitation Strategies, conducting total sanitation activities, along with support to rural water supply.
