Helping Honduras provide a true service delivery approach to water, sanitation and hygiene.
Honduras has been making big steps towards the adoption of a true service delivery approach to water, sanitation and hygiene. In 2013 this peaked with the decision by the national government to adopt a new water, sanitation and hygiene policy. The policy provides a clear framework for the service delivery approach and guidance on how to go about increased aid effectiveness.
IRC facilitated the policy development process and is now supporting national government in implementation of the policy. How?
IRC works closely with Fondo Hondureño de Inversión Social (FHIS), the Honduran Social Investment Fund and the Consejo Nacional de Agua Potable y Saneamiento (CONASA),the National Water and Sanitation Council) on the operationalisation of the water, sanitation and hygiene policy. Collaboration with both government agencies has been formalised through official agreements.
IRC is partnering other NGOs that are members of the Millennium Water Alliance MWA, in Para Todos Por Siempre, an initiative to reach Everyone, Forever in some 12 municipalities across the country.
