This project is completed

SNV in partnership with the Government of Zimbabwe through National Action Committee for Water Sanitation and Hygiene is deploying the RURAL WASH Information Management System (RWIMS) in the 8 rural provinces of the country. 

SNV initiated RWIMS to address the Key Development priority of NAC 2011 Road map on Knowledge Management. RWIMS will provide communities and WASH stakeholders with reliable, accurate and timely data on water supply services, sanitation and hygiene, enabling facilities and their functionality, coverage and location. 

Achievements:

  • A national WASH database covering 23 districts is available online at www.ncuWASH.org;
  • Sufficient capacity was built at national, provincial and district levels to operationalise and sustain RWIMS;  
  • National WASH definitions, standards and indicators were developed and adopted by the sector. 

 

RWIMS goes beyond achieving clean environments, it is helping us to address nutrition and food security issues.Mildred Choga, Umguza District Water & Sanitation Sub-Committee Chairperson
