Every morning for almost 20 years, Fazilat Usvalieva, a 56-year-old housekeeper from the village of Gulistan in Uzbekistan’s Fergana region, would take a jerrycan and walk five kilometres to the nearest well to collect water. Ten litres of water for just half a day: to drink, cook and wash, as well as provide water for her livestock.
The flyer details the features, functions and benefits of the E-SUD, as well as 10 simple steps to use the system. The publication is prepared within the joint ‘Rule of Law in Uzbekistan’ project of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
UNDP Uzbekistan has been operating in the country since 1993 and has cooperated with the Government on finding solutions to national development challenges. UNDP assistance in Uzbekistan focuses on two overall, inter-linked objectives; to support the Government in advancing economic and democratic reforms; and strengthening and fostering the participation of civil society in development processes at national and local levels. UNDP works in three thematic areas – inclusive and sustainable growth, inclusive and democratic governance, climate change and environment.
