Accelerating Change: Mainstreaming Hygiene Practice in India

This project will develop and promote a Hygiene Index (HI) that will serve as monitoring tool for the hygiene and sanitation performance of cities. The index will reveal how targeted interventions over the years have led to improvement in the hygiene and sanitation situation, thereby helping government stakeholders measure the current hygiene status of the cities. It will help policymakers identify the areas in need of improvement and the associated investments required. As of January 2017, the survey for 10 cities is complete.

Fact Sheet: Angola Community-Managed Water and Sanitation Project

USAID’s Community-Managed Water and Sanitation project improves water governance. Through a system of community water management activities, we help ensure affordability of water for consumers and the maintenance of water infrastructures. An important component of this system is creation and empowerment of community water and sanitation management structures through social mobilization. We also assist local administrations to plan and implement the system in their jurisdiction.
