This is the third One WASH Annual Report produced by WASH Section, UNICEF Nepal. It captures progress, challenges and lessons learnt during 2016 during implementation of WASH Programme. Significant progress was achieved by the UNICEF-assisted WASH Programme at both the upstream and downstream levels, as well as under the earthquake reconstruction and recovery works. With support from UNICEF, the Government of Nepal produced the final draft of the WASH Sector Development Plan (2016- 2030) through a wide consultative process. The final draft is due for approval by the cabinet
in 2017. Similarly, the development of WASH Act was also initiated in 2016 with support from UNICEF. Under the leadership of the Minister for Water Supply and Sanitation, Nepal actively participated in SWA High Level Meeting held in March 2016 in Ethiopia. In addition, Nepal had a strong presence at SACOSAN in January 2016 in Bangladesh with almost 50 high-level delegates. The event provided a great opportunity for Nepal to showcase its tremendous achievement in sanitation. UNICEF provided support both for SWA High Level Meeting and SACOSAN.
