Implementing community projects
We’re implementing a number of community water, sanitation, and hygiene projects in low-income areas in Barisal. The projects include construction of new water points and sanitation facilities and refurbishing existing ones. We’re also working on behaviour change activities to improve hygiene practices, and work with a local NGO to implement these.
Building the capacity of Barisal City Corporation
We’re supporting the Barisal City Corporation in implementing safely managed sanitation facilities. This includes developing a public-private partnership called SWEEP which improves the collection and treatment of waste from toilets. We’re also helping to build the city corporation’s capacity to manage the public-private partnership contract, and implement a monitoring process.
