Only just over halfway of the project timeline, the WASH project, implemented by a collaboration of RAIN and HELVETAS in the Dailekh district in Nepal, shows much improvements on the level of application of the WUMP+3R techniques by local authorities and on level of capacity enhancement. A follow-up on the training “WUMP+3R: Accelerating WASH through planning at local level” (See earlier update by HELVETAS) is currently in the making by RAIN and HELVATAS. Concerning the application of the WUMP+3R by local authorities, a detailed survey and cost estimate of a drinking water and sanitation scheme (Tarapani DWS in Dullu municipality) has been completed. Also, agreement with the newly established water users committee will be signed soon for the construction of water supply scheme, leading to improved access on drinking water. Furthermore, a total of 576 people of 96 households were reached by the hygiene and sanitation awareness campaign in the Kadalpani water supply scheme area, which constituted of both door-to-door visits and special attention to different WASH-related days such as the National Sanitation Week and International Water Day.
