On 6 March 2018 in Hanoi, NCERWASS in collaboration with WB organized a workshop to discuss about Rural WSS Sector Information System: Proposal of revised set of Indicators and finalize the RWSS monitoring and evaluation indicators.

The M&E for rural water supply and sanitation on the development of the indicator framework are useful for the RWSS sector As the New Rural Development NTP (NRD) is still developing its M&E system, RWSS indicators could be useful in feeding into the NRD M&E formulation process. In this regard, the WB team has reviewed the indicators used under NTP3, PforR, NRD and other good international practices with the view of having a set of indicators that are useful for RWSS sector reporting, NRD reporting and at the same time contributing to the global information/data. This is a challenging exercise in deciding what to drop and what to keep and how each indicator can be worded without too much affecting the sectoral indicators that are already in place.

The indicators are grouped into 5 categories: (i). water supply service delivery, (ii).  Sanitation service, (iii). Institutions – Schools and health centers, (iv). Sustainability of water schemes, and (v). Commune-wide sanitation sustainability. 

The indicators will be further consulted in other meetings.

On 28/2/2018 in Hanoi, NGO WATSAN Group meeting was organized to discuss on the Group operation during 2018-2019 and nomination of the new chairman Mr. Ngo Quoc Dung, representative of Church World Service to replace Mr. Nguyen Quy Hoa, the former Group chairman. The group agreed to meet on quarter-basis.

The upcoming meeting is planned to be held by 2nd quarter of the year to update and share pgrogress on WASH activities by related stakeholders, NGO members such as UNICEF, NUSA, NCERWASS, experienced experts ... CAWST Canada, ESSI, UNILEVER... The meeting topics will be planned for different meetings in the year including PPP, private sector involvement, water treatment in natural disasters, M&E softwares, WASH promotion at community level... studytours, training oppotunities by CAWST, ESSI experts. The New Rural Development Program (NTP) and WB scaling up sanitation project would be contacted and invited to participate in the Group meeting for sharing information and lessons learnt to support the sector achieving Sustainable Development 6 on sanitation. 



On 27/12/2017 with support from UNICEF, NCERWASS organized the

Planning workshop on emergency support for water and sanitation in 2017-2018 for recovery from Damrey storm.




Participated in the workshop were 67  representatives from NCERWASS, Unicef,  Việt Nam Women union, DARD, DoH, DoET, PCERWASS, CPM, CHIE, CRHC, WU, Red cross and 15 districts/communes from 3 provinces Thừa Thiện Huế, Bình Định và Phú Yên.

At the workshop Unicef shared their support program on emergency support for water and sanitation in 2017-2018 for recovery from Damrey storm for Vietnam and guide planning format on how to implement emergency support activities. Provincial participants discussed, developed and agreed on their provincial plans.



On 24 and 25/1/2018 in An Giang, the National Center of Rural Water Supply and Sanitation-Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in collaboration with UNICEF organize a workshop to share experience on piloting production of clay pot ceramic filter for household water treatment products and Public -Private Partnership in water supply service.

The need to improve the access to safe water is generally recognized for the benefit of public health in developing countries. This study's objective was to identify critical parameters which are essential for improving the performance of ceramic pot filters (CPFs) as a point-of-use water treatment system. Defining critical production parameters was also relevant to confirm that CPFs with high-flow rates may have the same disinfection capacity as pots with normal flow rates. A pilot unit was built in Cambodia to produce CPFs under controlled and constant conditions. Pots were manufactured from a mixture of clay, laterite and rice husk in a small-scale, gas-fired, temperature-controlled kiln and tested for flow rate, removal efficiency of bacteria and material strength. Flow rate can be increased by increasing pore sizes and by increasing porosity. Pore sizes were increased by using larger rice husk particles and porosity was increased with larger proportions of rice husk in the clay mixture. The main conclusions: larger pore size decreases the removal efficiency of bacteria; higher porosity does not affect the removal efficiency of bacteria, but does influence the strength of pots; flow rates of CPFs can be raised to 10–20 L/hour without a significant decrease in bacterial removal efficiency.



On 22/12/2017 in Hanoi, the WATER SUPPLY OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE WORKING GROUP met to update on the rationale to develop O&M Decree and O&M guideline manual presented at last meeting, share 5 O&M guidelines under RB-WSS in 8 RRD with WB loan:

  1. 1.O&M technical guideline
  2. 2.O&M water loss prevention guideline
  3. 3.O&M water supply scheme management guideline
  4. 4.Financial management guideline

  5. Marketing and IEC guideline 

and To consult the participants on draft O&M check list for water schemes by WB support mission SUPS 21 provinces (27/11-8/12/2017).

Particpanted in the meeting were 30 representatives from MARD (DWR-Dept. on rural water resource and clean water management, New rural development NTP Office, RWSS Partnership Coordination Unit, NCERWASS); PCERWASS from Sơn La, Tuyên Quang, Phú Thọ, Thái Nguyên, Bắc Giang; Social and family affairs dept. Women's Union; WB; Unicef; EMW; Plan International.

At the meeting, the partipants commented on the draft O&M Decree, O&M guideline manuals, budget allocation for water tarrif compenssation; ownership of water schemes; operation and maintenance of rural water piped schemes; integrating gender issue in the guidelines.

The participants agreed that the development of O&M decree is very necessary because there should be regulations to engage responsibility of State management agencies in rural water pipled schemes. Bedises, the O&M working group's plan is  to help rural water piped schemes 
to work more effectively and sustainably .





Vietnam Women's Union continue to implement the result based socialization oriented improved community sanitation project in 5 provinces. More than 11.000 households have built and used hygienic latrines with socialization oriented without bonus. They have participated in the study tour on fecal flush management in Thailand organized by East Meets West. WU collaborated with Plan International to implement pilotly the M&E tool for gender in WASH in 10 provinces and early efectiveness has been seen in WASH gender equality improvement. They also collaborated with develop the proposal on gender equality in WASH under Program on water for women.

VWU also collaborated with Australian WU, Australia in Vietnam organized Vietnam Australia women workshop on women empowerment in water sector on 7/11/2017 in Ho Chi Minh city with the participation of women in WASH sector in Vietnam, Australia, scholars, experts and NGO.

They contributed comments on the collaboration program AUS4WATER between GoA and GoV with an aim to reduce the burden of workload and strengthen economic empowerment for women via WASH activities under the program.
