Achievement reported for commitment "New measures (Policy and guidelines) developed for Sustainable"

Integrated Water and Waste Water sector policy drafted (2014) by Ministry of Urban Development Affairs. According to the Department of Water, Waste Water and Environment Affairs Management of MUDA  , the endorsement is pending to complete translation into local languages and final review by the Supreme Council of Water and Land  led by the President (This is a new setup recently formed  and replacing the Supreme Council of Water Affairs Management (SCWAM) that was led by the  Vice President). . The Integrated Waste Water Management addresses the sustainable management of all streams of waste water produced from all sources in urban areas, the complete management flow chain, and the intersections with and linkages to other (sub) sectors including hygiene and health, water, solid waste, energy, agriculture, and the environment.  Based on Afghanistan Environment Law the National Environmental Protection Agency (NEPA)  has designated specific sites for dumping of wastes, including septage and sludge, for many urban areas, and prohibits indiscriminate dumping of waste in any other sites.  However enforcement is slow and need to be implemented widely at the sub-national levels.
