GWP Nepal and the Water Integrity Network (WIN) has undertaken a project, "Assessment of the Morang Drinking Water Supply Corporation Functionality of the Water Supply Services", to inform service providers and consumers about transparency and accountability in the functioning of the Morang Water Supply System (MWSS). The Morang District is one of the seventy-five districts of Nepal covering an area of 1,855 km² with a population of 843,220.
A meeting to share findings of the study was held on 25th February in Biratnagar, Nepal. The presentations were followed by discussion by representatives from Biratnagar Water Supply Corporation (Service Provider) and consumers from 17 wards of the municipality. Both parties agreed to form a Joint Co-ordination Committee who will jointly monitor the service, share the problems and make joint plans for improvement and co-ordinate with the municipality.
The program is an important step in developing a capacity to share knowledge and strengthen water integrity in the region.
