Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The proposed project was first identified during a reconnaissance mission for potential for public private partnerships in 2005 and reactivated following the Water Financing Conferences held in Manila in September 2006 and in Hanoi in March 2007.

The project addresses the sustainable water supply for the short and medium term of the Province of Thua Thien Hue in the Central Region. Thua Thien Hue Province is located in the Central Region of Vietnam. The province has an area of 5,054 square kilometers and a population of 1,136,400 over 8 Districts, one City and 150 Communes and Wards. The project is directly linked to the agenda of assisting and supporting infrastructure development and public private partnership in infrastructure in the Central Region of Viet Nam to alleviate pent-up migration pressure on Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, from the Country Strategy and Program (2007 ? 2010).

The project will be included in the Water Financing Program for Viet Nam. The project will also look at the sanitation situation in the Province and coordinate with JBIC, which is starting a feasibility study in Hue City.
