Nepal joined SWA in 2010. The Ministry of Water Supply (MoWS) is the lead ministry for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH). Building on the success of the Millennium Development Goals, Nepal is committed to pursuing and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Access to safe water and basic sanitation is a fundamental right as per the constitution of Nepal. The water and sanitation related targets in SDG-6 are inherent in the country’s periodic development plan and guided by Nepal's WaSH Sector Development Plan (SDP 2016-2030). The Ministry of Water Supply is currently reviewing its sector planning and monitoring systems to be applicable within the federal system. In order to roll-out SDP, WaSH plans at municipality level is under preparation with a joint effort of three tiers of government and will be extended to all municipalities. This will help monitor progress on SDGs and improve evidence based decision making. Multi-stakeholder efforts have long been in place through the National Sanitation and Hygiene Coordination Committee active at the national level and WaSH coordination committees at the Provincial, District and Municipality (both Rural and Urban) levels.
