Political Prioritization

Financing

Milestones of Progress:

Ministry of Finance has allocated small account of funding for WASH in 2014/15 through which CLTS has been started in 3 provinces and has achieved ODF villages in all targeted provinces. The unstable political situation/election, and the withdrawal of international security forces, have caused a reduction in national revenue and aid support to Afghanistan. As a result the milestone for this commitment is not likely to be reached.


Steps Remaining to Fully Achieve:

Currently Afghanistan is totally dependent on international aid and WASH is part of that. SWA intervention and advocacy is needed to share these evidences to the donors for further investment (technical and financial). Additionally, the sector ministers and finance minister could also be motivated to prioritize WASH in government national budget.


Likely to Achieve for 2?

No, unlikely
