Global Sanitation Fund Programme Nepal – Progress Report – October 2013
Pages from GSF - Nepal Progress Report_SACOSAN Special

The GSF programme in Nepal was initiated in October 2010 with active participation from Government of Nepal and key stakeholders. Although initially, it took some time for the programme to take-off, it is now being implemented in all six programme districts and the initial impacts of the programme are now being felt. Originally, the programme was designed to be implemented in five districts and five municipalities of Nepal. However, upon request from the Government of Nepal, the GSF programme has taken up the challenge of supporting the government and the local people in demonstrating Bhaktapur as a model district for the Fifth South Asian Conference on Sanitation (SACOSAN V), which took place in Nepal in October 2013.

Behavior Change Communication Strategy on Sanitation and Hygiene

Pages from UN-Habitat-BCC-v3-webIn Nepal, despite repeated emphasis in improving Water,Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) behaviours, Behavioural Change Communication (BCC) programs are yet to be well grounded,and the strategies on BCC interventions are still in infancy. Nepal’s Sanitation and Hygiene Mater Plan 2011 focuses on both the program governance and promotion of anitation and hygiene.However, implementation of the concrete strategic steps on BCC is a most desired area of intervention to sustain sanitation andhygiene behaviours. UN-Habitat Nepal undertook a situation analysis on Information Education and Communication (IEC)/
BCC programmes in two Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) program implemented districts (Bardiya from Terai region and Arghakanchifrom Hill region).

Sanitation Marketing Strategies for Nepal

In 2011/12 UNICEF and IDE piloted sanitation marketing in 5 terai districts. Later in 2012/13 UN-Habitat Global Sanitation Fund Programme developed sanitation marketing (SanMark) strategies to pilot in its 5 target programme districts. UNICEF has piloted a new product of toilet (pan plus slab). GSF intended to strengthen existing market chain for materials of sanitation, repair and maintenance of water supply and hygiene in partnership of local bodies. These initiatives are believed to strengthen the supply side and back up the ongoing ODF movement in a demand responsive manner.
