The developments and achievements over a ten-year period of the Community Water Supply and Sanitation Programme, Pokhara, in hill areas of the Western Development Region of Nepal are documented. The programme concerns gravity fed water supply schemes with ferrocement water tanks and public tapstands, and school and household latrines. It is a joint effort of four parties: rural communities, the Nepali government, and donor organizations UNCIEF and SATA/Helvetas. Programme developments are traced from the initial focus on standardization of design and procedures with due attention to manpower training and recruitment. Over the ten-year period the emphasis has changed increasingly to promotion of sanitation and maintenance, and the rehabilitation of completed schemes. More recently personal and environmental health have been promoted as a means to increase the benefits of new water supplies.
