Abstract

Implementing the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Project in Cross River State Using the Participatory Development Planning Approach

It has been observed that most development projects implemented in most rural communities from either donor agencies or government are hardly sustained or maintained to serve the rural communities. This is so because the planning of these projects, its design and implementation strategies are usually made from outside the rural communities by external agencies and only transported to such rural communities for implementation, these projects seldom have community ownership, and hence they decay out of negligence and poor maintenance. Most rural community’s development has been hindered by the persistence health challenges orchestrated by the level of community’s ignorance of their water, sanitation and hygiene habit and attitude. This has severally led to the occurrence of water borne diseases, sanitation and other hygiene related ailment. In recent times this has been responsible for most child killer diseases, so concerted effort needed to be carried out to address the problem of water, sanitation and hygiene.
