CSO Traffic Light Paper scores and evidence, Afghanistan, 2016

The FANSA and WaterAid team developed scoring guidelines to all the SACOSAN countries to help them carry out this TRAFFIC LIGHTS PAPER (TLP) which is a way of bringing citizens’ voices to the table when governments meet at SACOSAN and to evaluate the progress made by the Governments.

Achievement reported for commitment "National Sanitation and Hygiene Plans with SMART indicators"

Draft Rural Sanitation Strategy prepared by the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD)  and the outcomes of a National Sanitation Logical Framework Analysis workshop held this year,  resulted in the initiation of a rural sanitation plan for accelerating  sanitation coverage and ending rural open defecation by 2025.  However the process for development of the plan goes slowly. Urban Water and Waste Water sector policy (2014) drafted by the Ministry of Urban Development Affairs (MUDA) already has led to development of plans for few cities including the capital Kabul. Individual WASH INGOs and UN agencies supporting the government has their own plans for their areas of operation. With withdrawal of international forces and postponement of donor funding the planning process has been facing challenges and delays.
