Too many stakeholders (e.g. Governmental and Non-Governmental Organisations, Donor Agencies, and Private Sectors) are involved in rural Water Supply and Sanitation (WATSAN) sector, and are currently executing projects in their own approach and modality which is easier and comfortable to them. The lack of single approach has not only brought confusion among recipient communities but also created managerial dilemma among various stakeholders. Therefore, in order to make a well established single approach in rural WATSAN sector, Department of Local Infrastructure Development and Agricultural Roads (DoLIDAR) has taken initiative. Thereto, DoLIDAR prepared an outline of the approach which was then revised by the centre level consultative meeting of major rural WATSAN stakeholders. Regional level workshops were also organized to collects comments/suggestion/aspirations from different stakeholders. The single approach thus prepared and endorsed by all stakeholders will be a milestone towards moving to Sector Wide Approach (SWAp) in rural WATSAN sector in Nepal.
