The inception of the national Ru-WatSIP dates back with setting up of othernational programs at MRRD. The core concept for having national programs under the framework ofMRRD was to create a more strategic, long-term approach and capacity building in order to develop andimprove coordination between organizational actors in humanitarian aid, local governance, recovery anddevelopment in Afghanistan.</p><p>The Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) is currently implemented through differentexecution modalities:</p><p>1. National Execution (NE) by the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD)2. Partners by United Nations Childrens Fund (UNICEF), Ministry of Public Health (MoPH),</p><p>Ministry of Education (MoE), International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs), and NonGovernmental Organizations (NGOs)</p><p>Under the NE, which began its activities in 2003, three areas such as access to safe water supply,sanitation services and hygiene promotion were implemented by MRRD/Ru-WatSIP respectively.</p><p>The MRRD/Ru-WatSIP, with support from UNICEF, Afghanistan Peace and Reintegration Program(APRP)/United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Norway, Spanish, World Bank (WB) andMinistry of Finance (MoF) has been executing projects to provide water supply and sanitation services inrural areas. The responsibility of Ru-WatSIP in this regard is to formulate strategy, develop policy, plan,coordinate and implement the rural water supply, sanitation and hygiene promotion activitiesundertaken by private sectors, INGs/NGOs and the rural communities namely CommunityDevelopment Councils (CDCs) and District Development Assemblies (DDAs).</p><p>Initially, Ru-WatSIP was designed to focus on three priority areas, covering 27 provinces particularlyimpacted during the post-conflict and transitional period, including areas with populations directlyaffected by years of war and internal conflict, the return of refugees and Internally Displaced Peoples(IDPs), and areas hit by natural disasters such as drought.</p><p>However, soon after the program was launched, Ru-WatSIP was extended to cover the entire countryto respond to emergency needs of vulnerable populations in other areas of the country. As both theministry and the Ru-WatSIP have increased their program management capacity, additional projects forrural development have been formulated and implemented under the Ru-WatSIP framework.</p></li><li><p>Ru-WatSIP-2nd Quarterly Progress Report, 2014 Page 2</p><p>PROGRAM OVERVIEW</p><p>The National Rural Water Supply, Sanitation and Irrigation Program (Ru-WatSIP) was established toprovide safe potable water and sanitation facilities as a basic need for all rural inhabitants of the country.Accessing to safe water and sanitation facilities in turn would result in a significant impact on the healthsituation in rural areas by introducing hygiene behaviors change. As one of the national program to benationally executed through the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), theprograms policy, design and implementation is led by MRRD, which also provides its generalcoordination and the oversight of all project activities. MRRD has maintained a firm commitment to theprograms development, and under the National Execution (NE) modality, is successfully steering andmanaging Ru-WatSIP.</p><p>The provision of water and sanitation facilities to rural communities in Afghanistan has been andcontinues to be the primary activities of the development aid community.
