Sustainable WASH for All in Nepal (SUSWA) is a WASH project funded by the Government of Nepal (GoN), the Government of Finland (GoF) and the European Union, implemented in and with selected municipalities in the Karnali Province. Niras Finland is the technical advisor.

SUSWA follows a Human Right Based Approach (HRBA) Gender Equality, Social Inclusion with focus on disability, and climate resilience are cross-cutting objectives, governing the design and implementation of the project, ensuring that everyone is included throughout.
