Afghanistan

Afghanistan joined SWA in 2010. The Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development as the focal point ministry for SWA and SACOSAN, leads a national multi-stakeholder coordination platform called the Water and Sanitation Group (WSG) which discusses all policy and strategic matters related to water, sanitation and hygiene. SWA has been providing platforms to WSG to interact with international partners. A joint Logical Framework Workshop conducted in 2015 decided to establish Afghanistan CLTS Movement, ACM with clear roadmap, where the contributions of all stakeholders particularly UNICEF, indicated that in principle Afghanistan can strive to be ODF by 2025. Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), the nodal agency for WASH and the ministry of Economy led Afghanistan Context SDG (ASDG) aims for achieving the SDG 6 - national water and sanitation coverage by 2030 conditioned to availability of required budget and government priorities for WASH.
