Sanitation, water and hygiene is global crisis that kills nearly 4,000 children every day, and undermines efforts to combat poverty, ill-health and inequality. It is estimated that over 2.2 billion people do not have access to safe sanitation and almost 900 million are deprived of clean water.
Nepal has to bear a loss of 10,500 children under 5 each year, due to diseases caused by unsafe water, poor sanitation and unhygienic scenario. In the country around 14 million people do not have access to sanitation. Forty two out of seventy five districts in the country have sanitation coverage below the national average. The country is in the process of drafting new constitution. It has provided immense opportunity to influence for incorporating people’s
agenda of sanitation and water in the legal framework of the country.
