  • Outsourcing the management of complex projects
  • Gradual adoption of a sector-wide approach through improved sector coordination and collaboration
  • Strengthening of water and sanitation acts and regulations
  • Institutional development
  • Clarity of institutional roles and responsibilities
  • Human resources development
  • Web-based monitoring and evaluation system and its public access
  • Adaptation to climate change and resilience
  • Optimal use of local resources and knowledge
  • A major Government concern is to reduce fragmentation of the water sector and improve governance as the basis for ensuring that all Nepalese have access to basic drinking water and sanitation by 2017.
