File Access, Management and Rational Use of Water (AGUA) - El Salvador by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 10:57 AM
Final Report of the Evaluation. The ARD-Water IQC Consortium, Burlington, VT 05402 USA. October 2002. The USAID/El Salvador Water Strategy, expressed in its Strategic Objective 4, Increased Access by Rural Households to Clean Water, was approved by Washington in October 1997. The purpose of AGUA is to increase access to clean water for rural Salvadorans in an environmentally sustainable way. Implementation of the AGUA Activity began in earnest in mid-1999 with the initiation of a cooperative agreement with the CARE-El Salvador Consortium of three local NGOs: SalvaNatura, FUNDAMUNI, and SACDEL to carry out project activities in 18 municipalities located within El Salvador’s three major watersheds in the departments of Ahuachapán, Usulután and Morazán. Within the following year, five smaller cooperative agreements with other organizations and a buy-in to a USAID global project were signed to implement additional activities in these same regions in order to expand into complementary technical areas of solid waste and wastewater management and increase outputs toward meeting the USAID/El Salvador’s SO4 under the responsibility of Mission’s Water and Environment Office (WE).
