Biratnagar, Nepal’s second largest city is located in the urban ‘Terai’, near the south-eastern border with India. 15% of Biratnagar’s population lives below the poverty line in slum and squatter settlements, with insufficient access to clean drinking water or adequate sanitation.

Since 2008, Biratnagar Integrated Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Project (BIWASH), has provided 12,198 people access to safe and adequate drinking water. It has also provided 7,097 people access to hygienic latrines and 1,801 people access to environmental sanitation facilities such as storm water drainage, bio gas plants and solid waste management.

The following short film is an update on the project’s progress to date.
