The Integrated Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Project for Mzimba and Ntchisi Districts is designed around the demand for improved access to water supply and sanitation facilities. The project aims at mobilising the people in the rural areas of the Mzimba and Ntchisi Districts in Malawi to take up the responsibility of developing their own rural water supply and sanitation services. It should assist to partially fulfil the demand of the beneficiaries for water supply and sanitation facilities. The main construction activities of this project should benefit an estimated 263 000 people in Mzimba District and an estimated 88 000 people in Ntchisi District. The Environmental Health Education activities should benefit a much larger proportion of the population of the two districts as the campaigns should cover the totality of the two districts. The project also goes for simple water supply systems and pit latrines for sanitation, which are cheap to implement, operate and maintain. It comprises three main components, namely: i) Infrastructure Development, ii) Social and Environmental Support, iii) Institutional and Project Implementation Support.
The sector goal is to ensure provision of adequate quantity and quality of water and adequate sanitation services to the whole population of Malawi. The project objectives are (a) to assist in providing safe and reliable water supply and sanitation facilities to the population in Mzimba and Ntchisi Districts, and (b) to carry out a hygiene and environmental sanitation campaign and water quality-monitoring program.
The project should benefit the rural population within Mzimba and Ntchisi districts of Malawi with a total population of about eight hundred thousand. Mzimba and Ntchisi Districts were selected as highest priority districts out of the 6 districts in the Northern Region and the 9 districts in Central Region. The districts in Northern Region and Central Region were ranked using parameters from the Malawi Social Indicators Survey 1995.
