This project plans to strengthen the capacity of the action program titled 'Clean Water for Coastal People in Bangladesh' (that runs adjacent to the Sundarbans) by setting up 10 delivery points at 10 villages, procure a delivery van to transport water and two reverse osmosis systems to increase the production capacity so that it can provide clean water to 2500 households at their proximity where salinity in surface water is a great concern and ground water is contaminated by Arsenic.
Global warming and climatic change causes sea level rise, as a result some low laying areas of the world are sinking -our project area is one of them. Therefore, salinity in the surface water (ponds and rivers) has been increasing and becoming unusable for drinking and other household purposes. On the other hand, ground water of the area is highly contaminated by Arsenic. Thus, access to clean water has become a grave concern for the people in the coastal villages in Bangladesh.
NGF provides clean water for drinking purpose to the local villagers through Reverse Osmosis System (ROS) -it is the easiest way to solve the problem. It has set up three production centers having capacity of 30000 liters a day. It can clean water from bacteria and other particles, and also can reduce salinity remarkably. Thus 1500 households got access to clean water. This project aims to expand the capacity of the ongoing program so that it can provide clean water to 2500 households.
This project will help 2500 households to get access to clean water for their life. It will reduce the healthcare-expenditure of the families. They will be able to raise their income by putting extra time for the economic activities they involved. It will help to reduce the climatic migration as some people are leaving the area due to lack of daily amenities, of them clean water is an important thing. Thus we will find a strategy for adaptation to climatic change also.
