Guide for Implementing the Minor Fixing Program


Guide for Implementing the Minor Fixing Program

Relief International’s Minor Fixing Program Manual provides a detailed account for how to implement a Minor Fixing program in a community of approximately 10,000 people. Minor Fixing refers to minor level maintenance and repair to a community water network and the Minor Fixing program involves community-led water network oversight and repair, including operation and maintenance.

This manual is based on Relief International’s two-year experience in implementing the Minor Fixing program in Darashakran Syrian refugee camp, which is located on the outskirts of Erbil, Iraq. The results of this program have led to an overall reduction in WASH-related problems, improved water system oversight – both within the community and at the Camp Management level – and contributed to improved water service delivery to camp households. While the information presented is based on this experience, the manual is intended as a guide for implementation in new camp contexts or related communities, where community-led water network oversight would be beneficial.
