Project Description

 

A demand driven and community participatory based  rural drinking water and environmental sanitation project jointly sponsored by World Bank, Government and the  community, 84%, 06% and 10%  share of each respectively was an innovative one and HETONA started providing intermediary services to this project from 1998 onwards. The project envisaged three stages; planning, implementation and operation and maintenance. Later the project was developed on sector wise approach rather than a project specific basis with the credit from international development association (IDA) towards the cost of Uttarakhand rural water supply and sanitation project.  Known as SWAp it essentially represents an approach wherein most significant public funding for the sector supports a single sector policy and expenditure programme under government leadership adopting common approaches across the sector, utilizing existing institutional systems and indigenous resources and progressing towards relying on a government procedures to disburse and account for all public expenditures, however funded. To put it explicitly, SWAp means a state investment programme to achieve the vision goals of rural water supply and sanitation.
