A study of community drinking water systems
conference contributionposted on 2018-02-12, 15:09 authored by Indra Rai
The communities in the hilly rural areas of Nepal where ActionAid has been working since 1982 are severally affected by the problem of water scarcity as well as acute poverty. In order to derive the most out of the available arable land people have inhabited length and breadth of the countryside. In most of the hilly slopes people have to collect water from long distances for daily use. Even that too, is not safe and clean and this is a major cause of ill health. ActionAid Nepal has identified the provision of safe drinking water as one of its priority areas in its integrated community development programme.
