HYGIENE, SANITATION AND WATER SUPPLY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

Background
This project is being jointly implemented by ISDCM and HCL with the assistance of DANIDA and the Government of Bangladesh. The HYSAWA Project is one of the parts of the Water Supply and Sanitary (WSS) component under the GoB-Danida Water Supply and Sanitary Sector Programme Support Phase II, 2006-2020 (WSSPS-II). The HYSAWA project is located in the three districts in the NW part of the country: Naogaon, Rajshahi and Nawabganj. (2) The project plans to deal with Hygiene, Sanitation and Water Supply development programme. It will facilitate and promote the Union Parishad (UP) based investments focusing on the poor, un-served and under-served areas. Funding for interventions will be channeled through a dedicated and autonomous “HYSAWA Fund”. The HYSAWA Fund is an autonomous body established under the Company Act of 1994 and is guided by a Governing Board chaired by the Secretary, LGD.

The Project activities are being implemented and financed through Local Government Support Unit (LGSU). In each of the three NW districts, separate Support Organization (SO) has been engaged to support LGSU to assist Union Parishad under the district for management of the HYSAWA Project activities. Under the HYSAWA Project, NGO Forum is also working for Capacity Building in 350 Ups in different districts of the country.
Total budget is Tk. 2,654 million. Of this the Danida will finance Tk. 1,405 million, GOB contribution is Tk. 306 million and the local beneficiary contribution is Tk. 943 million.

The HYSAWA fund is supporting the WSS activities in 200 unions of the three Districts. All 99 unions of the Naogaon District is being covered under the project.

In the Naogaon district, a Joint Venture Consortium of the House of Consultants Ltd and the Integrated Service for Development of Children & Mothers (HCL-ISDCM) has been engaged as SO. During the reporting period the project activities are being gradually fielded. The Project will continue for next two years.

1. Project Objectives

The HYSAWA Project is expected to contribute to all the WSSPS-II immediate objectives and long term development objectives.

The immediate objectives are:

The long-term development objectives of the WSSPS-II are to contribute to poverty reduction through improved public health and sustainable environment.

The Support Organization will ensure capacity building of the LGI, Local NGOs and other stakeholders like private sectors to implement HYSAWA Project.

2. HYSAWA Strategies

The strategies include decentralization, community level implementation and union parishad level implementation. The Ups will implement the community schemes by engaging local NGOs. The schemes requested by villages will be appraised and sent, after consolidation, to Upazila WATSAN Committee (UWC) for validation. Once a union scheme is validated, the UP will then send the proposal to the HYSAWA FMO with a request for funding. The Support Organization (SO) will assist the UP in the identification, appraisal, preparation and processing of project proposals and fund requests. Necessary support for execution / implementation of the schemes will be given.

The project will endeavour to make the intervention sustainable with involvement of the local government institution by developing appropriate capacity. Ultimately this will improve the health of the local people leading to the alleviation of poverty.

3. Cross Cutting Issues

The following cross cutting issues will be embedded into the community scheme preparation process and thus will be reflected in all implementation activities:

The Project will adopt possible actions at the grass root level in accordance with the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP), and the LGD pro-poor strategy.

4. Support Organization (SO)

A Support Organization has been engaged by LGSU for each NW district to support the Ups in the management of the project activities. The SO will supplement the capacity support at the UP level in promotional hygiene, sanitation and community scheme appraisal, preparation, processing them and managing their implementation. The SO will be a mobile unit traveling from UP to UP with the capacity support package. The SO will have a base office at Upazila headquarters and a coordinating office at district level, covering one district. The SO will need to have social as well as technical and project management skills. As an example, a National / Regional NGO and an engineering consulting firm could jointly make a consortium. The SO will ensure capacity building of LGIs and other key shareholders, like private sector etc.
