Nepal declared open defecation free, but people are still relieving themselves outdoors

Many households in the Tarai districts do not have toilets due to financial constraints and lack of land.

In December last year, Rautahat was declared “open defecation free” district. While gaining the ODF status, Rautahat became the third district in Province 2 and 63rd district across the country to achieve the feat. According to local authority’s data, a total of 82,767 toilets were constructed in the last three years. Like any other district, the ODF declaration was celebrated amidst much fanfare.


Nepal declared open-defecation free country

KATHMANDU: Nepal has been declared as an open-defecation free (ODF) country amid a programme here today.

Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli made the declaration on this notable achievement Nepal made at a programme organized by Ministry of Water Supply in Kathmandu. The declaration was made in recognition of all 753 local units of 77 districts that had declared themselves ODF recently.


Can Nepal remain open-defecation free?

Declaring Nepal open defecation-free is easy. The real challenge is keeping it so.

The government declared Nepal an open defecation-free country on September 30. It had previously aimed to free the nation from open defecation in 2017 at the fifth South Asian Conference on Sanitation. It is always good to hear that the country is making progress in the social sector, even though belatedly.
