Given the poor situation of drinking water, sanitation and hygiene in Afghanistan, Clients aims to reduce the burden of contaminated water, unimproved sanitation facilities and poor hygiene for children. Client with its limited human resource capacity cannot manage routine and daily planning and implementation related tasks of WASH. The works of extenders were done in the past by NTAs (National Technical Assistance) that were contracted through the former government ministers (MRRD, MoE & MoPH), and more recently through extenders. Now, due to the current context, client cannot support NTAs, and contracts were terminated at end of 2021 due to office instruction. Critical NTAs were then contracted as extenders through an LTA holder to continue the vital work these NTAs were carrying out for the WASH Programme. However, the current LTA contract will be terminated by end of May 2022 and in order that these extenders can continue their work for the WASH programme, UNICEF would like to bring all those extenders under a new LTA contract effective from 1st June.
Working with the people at community and CDCs (Community Development Councils) level, with relevant counterparts and other sector partners needs lots of daily coordination and documentation which is not feasible with client offices and staff. In the same time, client WASH is being implemented in remote communities which requires regular follow up and supervision at scale.
Due to the current humanitarian context, client would like to scale up its WASH programme significantly which requires human resource capacity at sub-national and community level which is not feasible with client WASH current staff.
Considering the scale up plan, importance of coordination with authorities and rigorous monitoring to be put in place for ensuring effective and efficient implementation of WASH interventions in remote areas, Technical Extender is the best possible solution which will help client to continue the ongoing work which was started through NTAs in the past. In this case, client will ensure accountability towards effective implementation of organizational objectives and efficient use of resources.
