Pres. Sirleaf Wants WASH Coordinated, Reflected Nationwide

MONROVIA, June 23(LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has challenged actors of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) sector to consolidate their efforts in a holistic way to achieve the goal of delivering WASH services nationwide, including rural and urban communities.

President Sirleaf chaired the First National Water Resources and Sanitation Board Meeting with criticisms of the fragmentation among partners, donors and their intervention in the WASH sector, making it difficult to achieve tangible results.

She spoke of the many different actors doing separate interventions in a fragmented manner that has not yielded the desired results for the good of the country and its people.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader made the claim at the Board Meeting held at her temporary office at the Foreign Ministry on Monday, June 22.

“The water sector is too fragmented and this makes it very difficult to deliver the kinds of services that are required for the people which are so urgently needed. We must find ways now to come together in a strong way to achieve this goal,” President Sirleaf observed.

She outlined the different government institutions that have responsibility for water, sanitation and hygiene issues and called for effective collaboration, coordination and cooperation among them to help curtail the visible fragmentation in the sector.

The Liberian leader also commended the various Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and donor partners in the sector for complementing government’s efforts of providing WASH services to the Liberian people and urged them to do more, but in a consolidated manner.
