Description and results


This project’s primary aim is to provide year-round access to clean water to 8,300 people in 34 rural communities in northern Nicaragua, the driest most environmentally fragile region of the country. The project ensures community ownership and provides training in water management to achieve long-term results. It also undertakes a host of complementary initiatives to promote health, hygiene and reforestation. Project activities include: constructing water supply systems, forming local community water committees to manage and monitor water use, and training community members in the operation and maintenance of the water systems. The project also organizes community-level campaigns and workshops on environmental health, hygiene and reforestation promotion, as well as workshops with municipal workers on sustainable resource use and the management of water.
