Background to SNV:

SNV is a non-for-profit international development organization that makes a lasting difference in the lives of people living in poverty by helping them raise incomes and access basic services. We focus on three sectors (WASH, agriculture, and renewable energy) and have a long-term, local presence in over 25 countries worldwide. SNV has been working in Nepal since 1980.

At SNV we believe that no-one should have to live in poverty. We are dedicated to a society in which all people, irrespective of race, class, or gender, enjoy the freedom to pursue their own sustainable development. We focus on increasing people’s incomes and employment opportunities in productive sectors like agriculture as well as on improving access to basic services such as energy, water, sanitation, and hygiene. SNV supports people to access and develop the capabilities, services and opportunities needed to live a healthy, productive, and fulfilling life, while sustainably using the natural resources they depend on. Unlike many other development actors, we do not offer funding, but specialize in supporting the resourcefulness of development actors. We work with governments, businesses, knowledge institutes and low-income communities so that together we can transform ideas into policy, policy into action, and action into results. Through our technical knowledge, 50+ years of experience, passionate staff, extensive local presence, and global footprint, we strive to make a lasting difference in people’s lives.

The former focuses on urban sanitation in four cities in four different districts, following SNV’s approach Urban Sanitation and Hygiene for Health and Development.

It aims to sustainably improve access to, and use of, safe drinking water for at least 450,000 people, sanitation for at least 2 million people and improve the hygiene behaviours of 

1,6 million people before the end of 2022.  The programme is built on three core strategic objectives: (1) increase demand for improved WASH facilities and practices; (2) improve the quality-of-service provision; and (3) improve governance of the sector.
