Nepal will receive a US $18.28 million World Bank (WB) credit for a rural water supply and a sanitation project. The fund will deliver sustainable health and hygiene benefits to the rural population, according to WB officials. The project will also provide for water and sanitation schemes for the Nepalese. This will help communities organise water-user groups, plan and manage their schemes and provide education and training in sanitation and hygiene.
