Indonesia | Water Supply and Sanitation for Low Income Communities Project
FY15–17 | 3.9 million people with access to water and 2.4 million people with access to sanitation
The objective of this IDA-funded project is to increase the number of underserved rural and peri-urban populations accessing sustainable water supply and sanitation services. The project supports the government in achieving this objective through mainstreaming and scaling-up a nationwide, community driven approach. As of May 2017, approximately 10 million people have access to improved water facilities, of whom 4.7 million are female. Approximately 10.6 million people have access to improved sanitation in about 12,250 villages. Approximately 56 percent of target communities reached open defecation-free status and 72 percent adopted handwashing programs. Approximately 84 percent of targeted schools improved their sanitation facilities and hygiene programs. Community Action Plans have been completed in more than 17,600 villages.

Mauritania | Social Safety Net System Project
FY15–20 | Improved support to the 100,000 poorest households in Mauritania.
The objective of this project is to support the establishment of the national social safety net and provide targeted cash transfers to extremely poor households.

The registry is expected to include the 150,000 poorest households in the national territory. So far, about 30,600 households are registered. (b) The National Social Transfer Program provides support to the 100,000 poorest households in Mauritania through cash transfers and social promotion and income-generating activities. So far, 5,100 households benefit. (c) The shock-responsive safety net allows the government to use social protection instruments to respond to crises. In 2017, the government implemented a shock responsive pilot program benefitting 1,000 households.
