Recently a survey, WASH, took place in Jacobabad (Interior Sindh) by UN HABITAT and Unicef to assist the Sindh government, which is the municipal development and services organization in Pakistan, regarding water and sanitation facilities in the area. WASH stands for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene. The survey was about the quality of services and water being currently delivered and utilized by the people there and how much they have to pay for it. The main concern turns out people of Jacobabad have no other choice but to pay whatever hefty price is demanded, that too for substandard, low quality water that takes up more than half the income from an average earning household. Officials and representative from the involved departments came forward to present the idea and their survey findings. Their solution was to set up a plant which would provide the residents with clean driving long water for a nominal few much less than what they pay currently for unclean sources of water. On the other hand, Sanitation facilities also need to be rendered in the area by construction of public toilets and daily cleanliness of the roads for garbage dumps and other filth.
The purpose of the research was to find out how much are the people willing to spend to live in better conditions, so with respect to that these aiding departments could start the project.
The session was full of valuable information and discussion. The last bit of Q&A was pretty helpful as the panel members raised a few points about the planning numbers for its execution, where a few gaps were pointed out, nonetheless, these discussions are for the benefit of the project and ultimately for the society. The more research and debate is done on a topic, more fail proof it becomes.
