ENCASA OAXACA

PROGRAMME FOR HOUSEHOLDS INTEGRAL ACCESS TO BASIC SERVICES IN OAXACA LOCALITIES WITH POPULATION LESS THAN 500 (MEXICO)

“WITH ENCASA OAXACA WE TAKE A STEP FORWARD WITH INTEGRAL ACCESS TO BASIC SERVICES OF ELECTRICITY, COOKING, DRINKING WATER & APPROPRIATE SANITATION”

The EncASa Oaxaca programme will improve the quality of life of Oaxaca households in poverty and extreme poverty of rural communities with population less than 500, through their access to basic services.

With this aim we signed a Framework Agreement to collaborate with the Government of the State of Oaxaca, through its Infrastructure and Sustainable Territory Development Secretary (SINFRA). Because, despite between 2012 y 2016 different electrification projects reduced significantly the number of population without electricity in Oaxaca -such as the 30,000 users of Luz en Casa Oaxaca-, it is estimated that thousands of households have no access to that service, as well as to safe cookstoves, drinking water and sanitation.

KEY ASPECTS OF ENCASA OAXACA

  • The lack of service is prevalent in small rural communities.
  • Their high population dispersion and bad communications infrastructures makes really complicated the traditional supply to those communities.
  • That lack of access to basic services ends in different problems that make difficult the population development, such as those related to health or education.
  • Within this setting, the EncASa Oaxaca 2018 project is started with the aim of bringing electricity to 1,000 households with third generation solar home systems.
  • In addition, we are executing a pilot to assess the feasibility of different options to provide quality drinking water, appropriate sanitation and improved cookstoves, to 50-100 families.
  • We develop EncASa Oaxaca 2018 in Public-Private Partnership for Development with the Government of Oaxaca, through SINFRA, and the Spanish and Mexican Cooperation Agencies (AECID and AMEXCID).
