The project is environmentally beneficial. Provision of improved WSS facilities has improved the health status and productivity of rural communities. During the project implementation, rural communities were actively involved in identifying needs and most appropriate design, operating WSS facilities.
Consultations with local communities were held in each village to discuss preferred design schemes and payment of water tariffs.
|During Project Design
|During Project Implementation
|The main objective of the Project is to improve the living and health conditions of selected rural communities, in particular for the poor, by providing basic WSS infrastructure services. The Project consists of two parts: Part A: Physical Infrastructure, and Part B: Capacity Building. Part A consists of about 100 subprojects; each covering an average of eight villages. The subprojects will include developing and rehabilitating piped water supply systems, wastewater drainage facilities, school latrines, and bath houses. Part B includes an institutional development program, and consulting services for project management support.|
|Inadequate delivery of rural WSS services, due to fiscal difficulties, aging infrastructure, and institutional constraints, is inhibiting communities from accessing basic WSS infrastructure services. Existing facilities are often poorly designed and inadequately maintained, and do not adequately provide urgently needed basic services. The capacity of the sector agencies concerned must be developed to enable them to implement projects and to undertake operation and maintenance of the constructed systems. In line with the Government's policy to use a decentralized community management approach, the Project will enhance the coverage of basic WSS facilities; contribute to improving living and health conditions, in particular for the poor; and improve the institutional, organizational, and managerial capabilities of the sector agencies.|
