JICA's Intervention and Response to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in the COVID-19 Crisis

JICA considers that the main areas of support needed in WASH in relation to the COVID 19 crisis are as follows:

  • Security of revenue of water utilities and continuity of water services,
  • Provision of water and sanitation services to vulnerable areas, such as informal settlements and urban slums,
  • WASH for essential facilities, such as schools and health facilities,
  • Mainstreaming of handwashing,
  • Knowledge sharing of lessons learned and experiences on countermeasures related to COVID 19, and
  • Creation of resilient WASH service for the with- and post-corona eras.

JICA is committed to respond timely to meet these needs through partnerships with other development partners including NGOs, comprehensive multi sector support, enhancement of handwashing awareness-raising activities, and knowledge creation.
