Journal Articles on Functionality & Sustainability

By Umesh Basnet | R&D and Fundraising Coordinator

Several research articles were written and published in journal.

Innovative Monitoring Mechanism: Evidence from Rural Drinking Water Sector in Nepal
A study on ‘Innovative monitoring mechanism: Evidence from rural drinking water sector in Nepal’ was
conducted by Dr. Maheshwar Prasad Yadav and published in Nepal Journal of Multidisciplinary Research.
The paper aims at determining innovative monitoring mechanism in the context of rural drinking water
sector of Nepal. This study is based on both primary and secondary data. The necessary primary data were
collected through telephone interview using semi-structured questionnaire while the secondary data were
collected through database and publications.

The collected data were analyzed through simple statistical
tools to derive results leading to major findings of the study. The study shows that the innovative monitoring
mechanism such as letter monitoring, hello monitoring, sensor monitoring, and toll-free monitoring are
useful tools for efficient and effective monitoring of rural drinking water system in the context of developing
countries like Nepal. Considering the innovative monitoring ladders and on-site monitoring, the study further
concludes that a combination of two or more innovative monitoring mechanisms will make more sense for
effective and efficient monitoring mechanism to keep the projects functional and sustainable. This study
may be useful for development actors in the sector, academia, and policy makers.

The study can be further
extended by capturing learning from the implementation for these innovative monitoring mechanism in
the context of rural and urban drinking water sector in Nepal.

 

Key Factors Influencing Functionality of Community-Managed Rural Water Supply System
in Nepal: A study on ‘Key Factors Influencing Functionality of Community-Managed Rural Water Supply System in
Nepal’ was conducted by Dr. Maheshwar Prasad Yadav and published in Nepal Journal of Multidisciplinary
Research.

The paper aims at examining key factors influencing the functionality of the community-managed rural water
supply system in developing countries like Nepal. The study adopts a descriptive cum analytical research
design based on primary data only. The required data were collected through a telephone interview using
a semi-structured questionnaire on a sample of 486 respondents from the respective community-managed
rural water supply projects. The collected data were analyzed using correlation, chi-square test,

Cramer’s
V, and cross-tabulation to find out the results leading to major findings of the study. The study concludes that the key factors influencing the functionality of the community-managed rural water supply system are the systems’ caretakers followed by the operation and maintenance fund, the activeness of the users’committee, and the availability of spare parts in the context of Nepal.

 

Status of the Building Blocks for Sustainable Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Systems
in Nepal: A Review: The study on ‘Status of the Building Blocks for Sustainable Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Systems
in Nepal: A Review’ was conducted by Dr. Maheshwar Prasad Yadav and Mr. Kumar Prasad Silwal and
published in Nepal Journal of Multidisciplinary Research.


The paper aims at reviewing the building blocks of sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH)
systems in the context of Nepal. The study consisted of a descriptive research design based on secondary
data that were collected from different published documents. The review was made through descriptive
comparison, percentages, graphs, and ratios to compare whether the country’s status is in line with the
global context. The study concludes that the proportion of the population having safely managed water
services in Nepal (16 percent) is quite lower than the global average (73 percent). Moreover, the proportion
of the population having safely managed sanitation services in Nepal (51 percent) is slightly lower than the
global average (57 percent).

Similarly, the proportion of the population having basic hygiene services in
Nepal (64 percent) is lower than the global average (75 percent). Furthermore, the findings on the status of
water, sanitation, and hygiene systems are mixed in the context of Nepal. Some of them have made good
progress and some of them need to be accelerated to go a long way to achieve SDGs by 2030.

The study further concludes that institutionalization, policy and legislation, and accountability mechanisms at the
federal level have been initiated while it is yet to materialize at the provincial and local levels. In the case
of planning, only 10 percent of rural/municipalities completed their WASH plan. In terms of finance, there
is not only a resource gap but also two-thirds of the total country’s WASH budget has been allocated at the
federal level. Action research should be prioritized to capture learning and awareness leading to adaptation
and knowledge creation in the sector.The study can be extended by incorporating the citizens’ views on WASH systems strengthening in the context of Nepal.
