Effective Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Services in Nigeria

USAID/Nigeria’s Effective Water and Sanitation Hygiene Services (E-WASH) project is an urban water and sanitation activity that will provide 500,000 families in six states access to a reliable supply of clean, piped water, to the benefit of three million Nigerians. 

Under the four-year, $60.4 million E-WASH project, USAID will provide assistance to Abia, Delta, Imo, Niger, Sokoto, and Taraba states to improve the health and hygiene of their populations by improving delivery of water and sanitation services through stronger, better performing state water agencies.

Comparing the Sustainability of Different Approaches to Rural WASH Access

The goal of rural water and sanitation investments is sustainable, long-term solutions to service challenges—yet donors and practitioners rarely measure the durability of project outcomes. Evaluations conducted midstream or shortly after project completion fail to adequately capture what water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) approaches are sustainable.

Brief: Millennium Water and Sanitation Program (PEPAM/USAID) Ex-Post Evaluation

This brief outlines the key findings from an ex-post evaluation of the Millennium Water and Sanitation Program in Senegal (PEPAM/USAID – Programme d’Eau Potable et d’Assainissement du Millénaire au Sénégal). Implemented from 2009–2014 by Research Triangle Institute (RTI) and a consortium of partners, PEPAM aimed to improve sustainable access to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in four regions of Senegal.

El Alto-Lake Titicaca Pollution Management Project

RTI is responsible for the implementation of the Project "Pollution Management in the Alto-Lago Titicaca Hydrographic Hub" (PROLAGO), which began in FY 2009 and has as a general objective "to contribute to the improvement of health and environmental quality reducing risks and threats to residents and biodiversity in the Hub Hydrographic El Alto-Lake Titicaca ". To operate in Bolivia, IRG created the Accidental Association PROLAGO and currently Engility Corporation is the name of the company to which IRG belongs.

Activity

Multi-Sector Alliances Program

The project pioneered new mechanisms for cooperation between public and private partners. Alianzas formed alliances by inviting new potential partners to participate in existing projects and jointly create solutions that could be implemented through nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) or government-led projects.

 

Activity

Health for Life

In spite of its mountainous Himalayan terrain and high rates of poverty, Nepal has experienced two decades of steady improvement in health and emerged as one of the few countries to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to reduce child and maternal mortality. For over 60 years, the U.S. Government has partnered with Nepal to strengthen the delivery of essential health services, especially for those in greatest need.

Activity

PEPAM (Programme Eau Potable et Assainissement)/ Millennium Water and Sanitation program

As in many West Africa countries, the availability of water governs the conditions of life for Senegal's rural population. A harsh climate and uncertain rainfall threaten food security and drive rural-urban migration, which further decreases food production while overburdening water and sanitation infrastructure and worsening social conditions. For years, these conditions have trapped the population in a cycle of poverty and disease.
