Aquatic Ecology Centre (AEC) successfully completed 14 months longitudinal observational study for building climate resilient Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in Jiri municipality, Dolakha.  Seasonal meteorological parameter, water quality and quantity monitoring along with WASH behavior to reduce health vulnerability was main activity of the study. In response to same, a debriefing workshop was organized at Jiri Technical School on 10th March 2018, among municipality and district level stakeholders and government officials. The study evidenced that the seasonal variation in meteorological parameters does influence drinking water dimensions and diarrhoeal diseases. Unimproved water supply system and lack of safety in those improved ones triggered for health vulnerability. Debriefing discussion concluded that Water Safety Plan (WSP) shall be optimum approach to build climate resilient WASH in resource constraint settings. Senior Division Engineer from Department of Water Supply and Sewerage (DWSS) further elaborated the need of WSP by protecting water supply from catchment to consumer. AEC soon plans to organize a national workshop for disseminating same findings and discuss it with national and local level stakeholders and officials for building climate resilient WASH in reducing health vulnerability.
