Please note that a new Framework and Handbook for the State was published in March 2015 - see link below.
Northern Bahr el Ghazal faces a major challenge to ensure sustainable water services to rural and urban communities. In the past Unicef’s regular supply of spare parts helped to keep the number of broken down hand pumps to a relatively low level (officially around 10%). With no more free spare parts from Unicef the number of non functioning hand pumps could increase dramatically. This first framework provides a basis for turning a potential crisis into an opportunity. Its success will need a major shift in both policy and practice for operating and maintaining hand pumps and require state politicians and public services, private sector and community actors to each play their role.
