Poverty Reduction

  • Operationalize Actions for MDG Acceleration, Sanitation

    The MDG Acceleration Framework (MAF) identified several bottlenecks that preclude progress in this MDG indicator to improve access to improved sanitation facilities. Challenges identified include poverty within households preventing constructing of sanitation facilities; system for determining which households can qualify for sanitation assistance; communities not seeking out agencies' support for the construction of facilities; and lack of community capacity in conducting regular maintenance and monitoring of the systems. Furthermore, hygiene education and related sanitation communication and awareness messages are implemented in an ad hoc manner especially in rural areas. The concept note proposes to expand implementation of the MAF CAP to include implementation of some of the solutions specifically those relating to Mayan and other ecologically vulnerable communities.
