ENPHO and BORDA have been working in partnership since 2004 to improve living conditions and to protect natural resources and climatic conditions in inadequately served urban and peri-urban settlements in South Asia. Concentrated in the field of urban sanitation, key achievements include technical support and scaling up of Decentralized Wastewater Treatment Systems (DEWATS), introducing Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) services in Nepal, local Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) capacity building, and innovations and demonstrations of new urban sanitation solutions.
More recently, they have been working closely on the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) funded ‘Integrated urban water management at the centre of municipal public services’ project (2018-2020). Designed in line with Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 6 (water) and 11 (sustainable cities), this project aims to support municipalities and environmental service providers to improve the living conditions of all inhabitants, protect natural resources, and develop liveable and inclusive cities.
Godawari is a young municipality experiencing water-infrastructure challenges, changing climate, and, due to its close proximity to Kathmandu, rapidly increasing urbanisation. This combination of pressures, and the importance of traditionally water intensive industries in Godawari, has caused the municipal region to become more conscious of sustainable integrated water and sanitation development strategies.
This report published by BORDA SA was only made possible with generous support from Godawari Municipality and the Environment and Public Health Organization (ENPHO).
Established in 1990, the Environment and Public Health Organization (ENPHO) envisages to create eco-societies by providing quality services on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), environment and public health. Research, innovations and promotion of the WASH technologies and approaches have been the core priorities of ENPHO, a service-oriented national Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).
BORDA (Bremen Overseas Research & Development Association) is an expert NGO specialising in full-cycle decentralised sanitation. For over 40 years, their award-winning solutions have empowered people and set new standards in 20+ countries around the world.
