The landlocked Central African Republic has been undergoing a political and military crisis since December 2012, when rebel coalitions clashed with government forces over the former's failure to honour signed peace agreements. The economic and social impact of this crisis have severely affected the access to drinking water for the population in rural areas, particularly those where humanitarian access has been limited due to such instability.
The objective is to rehabilitate water points through redeployment of skilled craftsmen to repair manually-operated water pumps and wells, and hygiene promotion in rural prefectures. This project is integrated in a larger ICRC-project.
Since water distribution infrastructure improvement is at the centre of the programme, repair workers are targeted in order to improved communities' access to water. Also at the community-level, good hygiene promotion focuses on reaching individuals to improve the uptake of good hygiene practices.
