Mekong partners join efforts through SAWAP (Sanitation and Water Partnership for the Mekong Region)to achieve the MDGs.

Updated 18 July 2007 from http://www.irc.nl/page/36838.

The Mekong sub-region is increasingly becoming a focus area for the Water and Sanitation Program - East Asia and the Pacific (WSP-EAP) support, with SAWAP (Sanitation and Water Partnership for the Mekong Region), a demand-responsive, multi-country technical assistance programme, as a significant mechanism for delivering programmes. Consultative meetings have been held in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Viet Nam and a joint inter-country planning meeting in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to help identify demand, further informing WSP’s support work planning for FY08 and beyond. The meetings have also resulted in the establishment of SAWAP Core Teams and agreement on a partner-led coordination mechanism for SAWAP. The three initial WSP focus countries have agreed on six specific SAWAP-supported cross-boundary projects that reflect SAWAP’s two parallel activity clusters, namely identifying and scaling up sustainable solutions and mobilizing resources to achieve the MDGs. In May 2007, the partnership completed its first phase of consultation workshops and field visits by organizing a start up meeting in Yunnan Province of China. Beginning July 2007, FY08 will see an increasingly intensive phase of expanding WSP support work to country-led SAWAP initiatives. Access to adequate sanitation in Cambodia, Lao PDR, and Vietnam, averaged just 36% in 2004, with access to improved water supply standing at 59%.
