I’m delighted to know that WSUP will provide support to improve the water, sanitation and hygiene situation in low-income communities, and we from the City Corporation are ready to extend our support and co-operation to make this programme successful.
Launching a public-private partnership
SWEEP is a public-private partnership that provides a faecal sludge emptying service and tackles the challenges of poor faecal waste collection. We’re working with the Rangpur City Corporation to implement SWEEP, and deliver improved waste collection services across the city.
Implementing community projects
We’re implementing a number of community water, sanitation, and hygiene projects in low-income areas in Rangpur. The projects include construction of new water points and sanitation facilities or the refurbishment of 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 Rangpur City Corporation
We’re providing strategic support to Rangpur City Corporation so it can build its capacity to monitor and enforce regulations. By doing this the corporation can manage SWEEP, a public-private partnership contract that provides a faecal sludge emptying service and tackles the challenges of poor faecal waste collection.
