Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Inadequate delivery of rural WSS services caused by aging infrastructure, institutional constraints, and fiscal difficulties is inhibiting communities' access to basic WSS infrastructure services. Existing facilities are often poorly designed and insufficiently maintained, and do not adequately provide urgently needed basic services. In line with the Government's policy to use a decentralized community management approach, the Project will enhance coverage of basic WSS facilities; contribute to timproving living and health conditions, in particular for the poor, and improve the institutional, organizational, and managerial capabilities of the oblasts.
