The CLP recognises the importance of addressing Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) on the chars. The CLP provides essential infrastructure to char dwellers to ensure access to clean water and adequate sanitation, and raises awareness about health and hygiene. Improving access to WASH is essential as it has an overarching impact and contributes to a number of the programme’s main outcomes, including food security, nutrition and improved livelihoods.
A recent study led by the Innovation, Monitoring and Learning (IML) division revealed that the CLP was having a mixed impact on WASH. Further research was conduced in October 2012 to further assess the CLP’s WASH outcomes. This report documents the findings of the research.
