Water Assessment Reports for UNICEF
This report is the result of a request by UNICEF to evaluate the design concept and technical details of the BIAD/UNICEF Water Supply and Sanitation Programme for Balochistan.
To make this evaluation possible, the Pir Alizai Cluster Scheme in the Pishin District and the Goth Gohar Khan and Allah Dino Rind Cluster Schemes in the Naseerabad District were visited. We also studied the drawings, tender documents and other related documentation available for these clusters. The Chib Kalmati Cluster Scheme in Gawder was not visited but its designs a documentation were studied.
During these site visits, we were able to talk to the notables of the areas, the users or prospective users, and in one case the contractor and the site engineer.
