Supporting Somé people flooded 

Challenges

Change change is strongly affecting the people of the village of Somé in the municipality of Abomey-Calavi (Southern Benin) by recurrent floods that negatively impact populations health through living conditions degradation. This situation enables the development of water diseases. Sanitation solutions are then indispensable to enhance populations resilience face to current and future floods.

This project aims to improve the health conditions of Somé populations flooded and to raise their awareness on climate change implications on health.

Approach adopted 

In order to well achieve the project objectives, the project has two components. The first component is about populations awareness raising on good techniques of hygiene and climate change effects on health. The second component is to build public sanitation infrastructures for the populations in order to considerably reduce water diseases.

Outcomes

  • Two hundreds (200) households awareness are raising on good techniques of hygiene and climate change effects on health ;
  • Two (02) public latrines are constructed ;
  • Two hundreds (200) households have access to the public latrines.
