Encouraged by the successful and satisfactory completion of previous projects the GoN and the World Bank have agreed to implement Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Improvement Project (RWSSIP) from July 2014 to June 2020 through the Fund Board. The Fund Board has set the target in the RWSSIP to accomplish altogether 1874 WASH schemes by benefiting 1.5 million populations in 55 Districts of Nepal.
To fulfill the national target on water and sanitation set by the Government of Nepal, the Fund Board is conducting integrated water and sanitation project as well as sanitation stand alone projects.
