Project Description
The development objective of the Results-Based Scaling up Rural Sanitation and Water Supply Program Project for Vietnam is to improve hygiene behavior, increase and sustain access to rural sanitation and water supply in rural areas in the participating provinces. The program results and supporting actions needed to efficiently achieve them are organized around three key results areas: results area one relates to the delivery of behavior change communication (BCC) plans, achievement of commune-wide sanitation, and increased coverage of water supply; results area two is focused on medium-term sustainability of the infrastructure verified under results area one; and results area three is centered around improved national, provincial, and local capacity for program implementation. The program will contribute directly to the achievement of Vietnam’s decade-long commitment to meeting the millennium development goals (MDGs), and the sustainable development goals (SDGs).
