Fiji: Suva–Nausori Water Supply and Sewerage Project
To address the deficiencies in water supply and sewerage systems, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Government of Fiji prepared a public sector investment project to enhance human development, particularly for the urban poor, by improving water supply and sewerage services and introducing incremental institutional reforms to improve the efficiency and sustainability of the improved services. In January 2009, Fiji government asked ADB to provide supplementary financing to cover anticipated cost overruns for the original loan. The original project rationale remained valid as the provision of reliable and sustainable water supply and sewerage services, and improvement in public and environmental health, continued to be high priorities of the government.
This report validates the completion report’s assessment of the project. IED overall assessment: Less than successful.
