Water and Livelihood
The challenges in the water sector are not only limited to availability, accessibility and quality but also include keeping the available water schemes operational and sustainable for long time. For these reasons IRE started intervening to mitigate these challenges through constructing and rehabilitating water schemes,expanding and improving water infrastructure, hygiene and sanitation, building the capacity of local communities and local government sector offices.
IRE has implemented the followings in water sector:Islamic Relief interventions in WASH include improving water infrastructure,provision of maintenance tools, establishment and training of community WASH committees, improvement of sanitation facilities and construction of dams and water supply systems.
In addition IRE uses an integration approach in its WASH sector which goes to the level to support communities’ livelihood through giving chances to irrigate farms,water for livestock with an aspiration to assist substantially pastoralist livelihoods and water supply and sanitation.
