ABSTRACT: In 2010 it was estimated by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) (2012) that 89% of Nepal’s population had access to an improved water supply source, however, the Government of Nepal (2011) estimated that approximately half of those water supply systems were not functioning properly. Nepal Water for Health (NEWAH) is a Nepali non-government organisation that has implemented several rainwater harvesting systems (RWHS) in the rural hilly regions of Nepal.

Multiple Use of Water Services (MUS) is an approach towards water service provision that takes multiple water needs as a starting point for providing integrated services, moving beyond conventional sector barriers of domestic and productive sectors (Van Koppen et al., 2006). At the project level, NEWAH supports separate collection of waste water from water points as well as surface water drainage in collection ponds. This water can be reused where appropriate, for example in kitchen gardens. This booklet gives information on MUS in the Nepali context.Download
Since 2000, NEWAH has promoted the use of waste water to help community people take up kitchen gardening in project areas. In the recent years, the depleting water sources and the need to make the optimum use of available water in the project areas has grown as a matter of concern for NEWAH. This is a guiding document for NEWAH as well as resource for others in the sector to promote Domestic Plus and MUS in the project areas to make the best possible use of water that is accessible.Download
