Basic Introduction

National Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Program (Ru-WatSP)

The National Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Program (Ru-WatSP) was created in 2003 by the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD). The responsibility of this program is to develop policy, formulate strategy, plan, coordinate, and implement rural water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion activities undertaken by private sectors, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and the rural communities namely Community Development Councils (CDCs) and District Development Assemblies (DDAs). Through the promotion of improved access to safe and sustainable water supplies and sanitation services and the adoption of hygienic best practices at the personal, household and community levels, the Ru-WatSP works to reduce morbidity and mortality rates (particularly for children under five years of age) and (enhance productivity and well-being). Access to improved and safer water and sanitation services in rural communities collectively contribute to increased human health. The program is inclusively supporting all of the communities including the poorest and vulnerable people.
