Water For Darfur Urban Project
What is the project about?
UNICEF and UNOPS are proposing “WATER FOR DARFUR: Sustainable and more equitable access to water, and improved sanitation and hygiene behaviour in targeted state capitals in Darfur” project to DFID in order to effectively respond to the current water, sanitation and hygiene needs of Darfur urban capital hubs of El Fasher and Zalingei which is in line with DFID Sudan’s efforts to move, where possible, to longer-term and more sustainable approaches.
The proposed project will ensure sustainable and more equitable access to water and improved sanitation and hygiene behaviour for 400,000 urban population in targeted state capitals in Darfur. The project will have WASH service provision in El Fasher and Zalingei. Urban Water Administrations institutional capacity building support will be continued at El Geneina and Nyala. A Strategic Plan for future investments in El Fasher and Zalingei will be developed, and the recommended short term works will be implemented.
