Water, sanitation & hygiene

CPD’s water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programme is aimed at contributing to the achievement of the seventh millennium development goal of halving the number of people without access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation in the areas we work.

The programme provides sustainable and integrated WASH services breaking the cycle of contamination caused by unhygienic latrines, contaminated water, and unsafe hygiene practices. We ensure the sustainability of these interventions by encouraging community ownership, developing linkages with local governments, and encouraging local entrepreneurs to supply low-cost hardware.
