To achieve the target, the locality plans to expand the existing water supply systems so that they can bring hygienic water to more 60,000 people in 20 communes. 

The local authorities have also set to provide hygienic water for 100 percent of local schools and medical stations by 2015.

Campaigns to raise public awareness of environmental sanitation will also be organised, while models of environmental protection involved by the locals will be set up.
