Mongolia Water Security: Household Water Security
Household water security provides an assessment of the extent to which countries are satisfying their household water and sanitation needs and improving hygiene for public health in all communities. Household water security index for Mongolia is a composite of four indicators (i) access to improved water supply (%); (ii) access to improved sanitation (%); (iii) hygiene, DALYs per 100,000 people for the incidence of diarrhea; and (iv) distance to water source points (meters). The criterion for improved water supply is that 60% and for improved sanitation is that 40% of the rural population should have access to improved water supply. None of the soums can reach the criteria of 60% and 40%. The criterion for hygiene is the number of diarrhea occurrences per 1,000 people. The actual number of occurrences of diarrhea in Mongolia is very low. Southern Gobi Region, need to travel longest for water, with a maximum of 37% having to travel for more than 1,000 m to the next water source. Household water security is an essential foundation for efforts to eradicate poverty and support economic development. Meeting the needs of improved water supply and sanitation for the local population is a priority which require targeted investments.
