Water sector reform
GFA supported the Ministry of Water and Irrigation in improving regulations and financing mechanisms related to sustainable sanitation and water supply services for the urban poor. This comprised the implementation of water supply and sanitation projects through the Water Service Trust Fund (WSTF), the development of standards for commercialized services providers, and the establishment of the national information system. One of GFAs major tasks was support to the Up-Scaling Basic Sanitation for the Urban Poor Program. Here, GFA supported the WSTF in developing and implementing a scaling-up concept for improved access to basic sanitation.
