Water And Sanitation Programme - Global (Norwegian Contribution)

The goal of the Water and Sanitation Programme is to contribute to the achievement of the water and sanitation related MDGs/ WSSD targets in urban areas, by supporting the creation of an enabling environment for pro-poor investment.This would be done by providing an already recognised focus point for channeling increasing ODA resources, through the Water and Sanitation Trust Fund to a growing number of selected target countries in order to help create the appropriate enabling environment. Thus the Programme will:support cities and communities, with demonstrated commitments, to take initiatives promoting investment in water and sanitation specifically targeted to the poorest of the poorprovide a fast track mechanism for reaching out to the urban poor and will provide a bridge for the urban poor to access benefits from citywide improvement which often bypass themaddress with priority requests for support from countries, that have low water and sanitation coverages in the regions that the programme has a presencePriority will also be given to community initiatives in support of sanitation provision and hygiene education. Special consideration will be given to initiatives that could reduce the burden of women and children in accessing safe water and adequate sanitation. The basic logic behind the Trust Fund's intervention is the following: development is a process of change and to be sustainable, change strategies must be locally owned; this in turn requires public awareness which results, if properly supported, in enhanced capacity in communities and cities, and in strengthened political will to adopt policies and regulations favourable to pro-poor investments. The mission of the Trust Fund is to support this process by contributing knowledge, expertise and material resources.
