National Rural Water and Sanitation Program (PRONASAR)

Speeches Shim

BACKGROUND
The Transformation of Rural Water and Sanitation Hygiene Service Delivery in Mozambique programme (T-WASH) aims to drive sustainable improvements to WASH service delivery in poor local communities through building capacity of national systems and incentivizing improved service delivery at the local level by instituting a set of performance indicators linked to financial support. USAID/Mozambique is supporting PRONASAR through a Delegated Cooperation Agreement (DCAR) signed with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
T-WASH is delivered through three main components: (i) Support to sub-national government WASH service delivery entities under the Government of the Republic of Mozambique (GRM) National Program for Rural Water and Sanitation (PRONASAR) with funds deposited in an off-budget (Off-CUT) account and disbursements managed by a provisional Fund Manager; (ii) Technical assistance/capacity building delivered through a Capacity Building Agent to support national and sub-national capacity of the GRM; and (iii) An Independent Monitoring Partner for independent verification of results against the agreed performance indicators for PRONASAR. The development objective of T-WASH is to contribute to improved health and time saved to invest in other opportunities especially for women and girls in targeted rural areas, through sustained increase in effective demand, supply and use of WASH services for the rural poor. USAID/Mozambique provided a grant to support the implementation of T-WASH and PRONASAR activities.

EXPECTED RESULTS AND IMPACTS
The goal of PRONASAR is to contribute to the satisfaction of basic human needs, improve well-being and reduce poverty in rural areas, through increasing access to and use of water and sanitation
services as set in the mission’s strategy.
