that 400 households of Degwar are without roof. Walls have been constructed but
there is need of CGI sheets for roofing for these households. Water born
diseases like cholera diarrhea and malaria are prevailing in Degwar. Patients
of Degwar have been suffering from malaria last year. Malaria section of Health
department is working there but is difficult for them to visit regularly the
remote area of UC Degwar. There is need to work on control of outbreak of this
disease. There is need of proactive attitude of people to cooperate in this project
for project sustainability and we will cooperate with HRSP for implementation
of this project.

Ashaq Ahmed Khan.

Resource person of this session discussed on water management, waterborne diseases
and their control. 

Water management:
Everyone is accountable for every drop of water. Use water in the way that its
tracks do not disturb the life of other. He said that malaria is due to mosquito.
It can be biologically controlled by conservation of the habitat of Dragon fly.
One Dragon fly eats 100 mosquitoes daily. Its nymphs eat mosquito’s more than
adult dragon fly. Don’ use spray for the control of insects and diseases on
vegetables and fruits. Chemical spry diminishes the population of birds. Butterflies
and honey bees are the pollinator of 40% plants. Due to presence of three
birds, Bulbul, Long tailed minivet and tit in any jungle, the insect which
damage and hollow tress are finished Kestrel (Basha) eats mouse and small
insects. He suggested stakeholder’s especially local community of Degwar to
collect data of previous 5 years that how many people died from water borne
diseases. Session was closed after open discussion on project implementation.
