The Transforming Rural Livelihoods in Western Zambia Project is part of the broader National Water Supply and Sanitation Program and a continuation of funding from the African Development Bank, the KfW, DANIDA, JICA, UNICEF, among other lenders, for which Phase I was closed in December 2014. It will be implemented over a period of 60 months commencing in 2015. The program aims to provide sustainable access to water supply and sanitation in sixteen (16) rural districts of Western Province namely Kalabo, Mongu, Sesheke, Shangombo, Kaoma, Lukulu, Senanga, Mwandi, Mulobezi, Sioma, Nalolo, Mitete, Luampa, Nkeyema, Limulunga and Sikongo so as to contribute towards poverty alleviation of Zambia’s rural population and also contribute towards achievement of National Vision targets of universal access to water and sanitation services. The project will have four main components namely: (i) Water Supply Infrastructure Development, (ii) Sanitation and Hygiene, (iii) Sector Development activities including Capacity Building and (iv) Program Management. The water supply component will focus on rehabilitation and new construction of water supply infrastructure. Western Province has one of the lowest access rates for water supply at 49%. The sanitation and hygiene component will utilize Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) promote Open Defecation Free (ODF) communities, improved household sanitation through sanitation marketing, improved hygiene practice and communal facilities for schools (830), (16) markets and (70) health centres. Sector development activities will focus on promoting overall sector policies, activities, institutional capacity building and strengthen sector M&E at the national, provincial and district level. Project Management will make provision for technical support, training, transport and equipment to facilitate smooth and effective program implementation.
The overall sector goal is to improve the quality of life and productivity of all Zambians by ensuring an equitable provision of adequate quantity and quality of water to all competing user groups, and improved sanitation services for all, at acceptable cost and on a sustainable basis. The objective of the National Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Program is to provide sustainable access to water supply and sanitation in rural areas so as to contribute towards poverty alleviation of Zambia's rural population and contribute towards achievement of MDG for water.
The intervention will provide improved water to about 688,000 people (357,760 women) and reach out to about 573,000 people (297,960 women) through CLTS activities and sanitation marketing and result in improved access to safe water and adequate sanitation of 78% and 65% respectively by 2017. Special attention will be given to disadvantaged rural communities. Schools and health centres will benefit from the program.
