Background

Parliaments have a crucial role to play in various national development processes including Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). As representatives of constituencies where they have been elected, they are also mandated to speak on behalf of the poor and other vulnerable groups, to ensure that development plans related to WASH are informed by the real priorities on the ground. In practice, they are expected to adopt requisite legislation, approve budget allocations, and exercise oversight over expenditures. However, parliaments often have limited independence, knowledge and resources to perform their functions effectively. As a result, the role of parliament in improving the effectiveness, impact of government financing and shaping WASH strategies that reflect the concerns of the people tends to be overlooked or in most cases weak. With this constraint to parliaments, Sanitation related development approaches in Pakistan are mostly shaped and driven by various interest groups. This problem is exacerbated when local communities have limited ability to continuously engage with their representative in parliament in seeking progress on how their views and concerns are being handled as well as following up on promises that are made government at the international level and during their election campaigns. Now one activity is aiming to design a manual on Sanitation Rights, budget allocation and capacity building of Parliamentarians on Sanitation as a right.
