and sustainable management
of water and sanitation for all
How remittance families contribute to the goal
To create social capital and pool funds to address local needs, migrants and/or their families often organize themselves into neighborhood organizations in their communities or through hometown associations (HTAs) abroad.
HTAs identify development priorities and participate in their achievement though technical advice and fund- raising activities.
Community projects take into account sustainability concerns and community welfare based on primary needs (e.g. the provision of irrigation and clean water infrastructure).
Support social capital with migrant groups that facilitate pooling of funds to sustain investment in water and sanitation infrastructure in their places of origin.
Promote partnerships between local authorities and migrant groupsand/ or HTAs towards identifying water and sanitation priorities, and join design and fund-raising efforts for project implementation.
Create incentives for remittance families to invest in sustainable agricultural irrigation infrastructure that efficiently manages water resources.
