WASH Workshop Vouches For Water In Bong, Lofa  Nimba

By Ballah Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, July 1 (LINA) - Participants at a National Rural Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) workshop in Gbarnga, Bong County have called for improved water supply in Bong, Nimba and Lofa counties.

In their recommendation at the end of the two-day event, the participants called for the institution of a clear policy that will guide the WASH sector.

They want the policy cover training of personnel, supply of logistics, construction of more water and sanitation facilities in rural communities and the involvement of community dwellers and stakeholders in the sector.

The workshop identified the lack of a clear WASH policy as a major factor hampering access to safe and reliable water supply across the country.

Despite the recommended 250 threshold for water point by civil society groups, coupled with government’s quest to provide 25 liters of water per person, only 61 percent of the country’s entire population has access to safe drinking water as indicated in the 2008 national census.

The National Rural Water Sanitation and Hygiene program, initiated by Government and funded by the African Development Bank, started in March 2014 and is expected to end in November this year.
