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 "% increase in budget allocation for sanitation"

As part of SACOSAN VI preparation and based on the request of WSP/ WB  , collection and analysis of information on funding and expenditures  is initiated by MRRD with the support of UNICEF and other stakeholders. Information collected to date found that Ministry of Finance has allocated US$  36,000 for hygiene and US $ 60,000 for sanitation (last 2 years), DACAAR an INGO received $ 9.3 millions for hygiene and $ 13.9 million for sanitation from Donors ( last 5 years) , and other INGOs allocation was $ 668,000 for hygiene, and $ 1.9 million for sanitation ( last 3 years). Also SWSS received from USAID $ 440,000 for hygiene and $ 660,000 for sanitation  ( last 3 yrs) . In addition $ 2.7 million was allocated for urban Sanitation by WB and $ 533,335 through BORDA (last 5 yrs). Breakdown was not given for yearly allocation. UNICEF allocation for the last 5 years was more than 2 million US dollars for sanitation . At the same time  household expenditures on Hygiene was $ 10.4 millions and on Sanitation it was $ 18.5 millions. To date it makes about $ 20.84  million US dollars for hygiene and $ 40.25  for sanitation from 2 to 5 year periods . Without  a baseline it is not possible to provide a percentage for  increase or decrease of funding since SACOSAN V.  Also a system is not yet developed for reporting the allocation of fund in the sector. But this exercise left a base for future to calculate the percentages.  It is to be mentioned that in this exercise accurate expenditures were given , but the accuracy of allocation was questionable.  According to MRRD,  Participation of Key Government staff in SACOSAN and SWA events has resulted in the political will and interest of Government for funding in the sector ( Sanitation and Hygiene). Schools usually receive funding and support for WASH from UNICEF  and few NGOs that is included in the above allocations.
