Description Tranche 2 will finance water supply infrastructure in Guwahati, and drainage infrastructure in Guwahati and Dibrugarh cities of Assam. The tranche will support infrastructure investments to (i) augment water supply system in Guwahati to benefit additional 350,000 residents, and (ii) improve drainage system in Guwahati and Dibrugarh to reduce water logging and flooding. The project will also support (i) capacity development of staff from urban local bodies and implementing agencies, and (ii) community awareness campaigns.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Currently, only 30% of the population in Guwahati has access to piped water supply, while groundwater sources have high fluoride and arsenic content. In addition, Guwahati and Dibrugarh are suffering from prolonged local flooding during monsoon over 5-6 months annually. Because of the lack of comprehensive sewerage system and inadequate solid waste management, the rainwater drainage system in most areas of these two cities gets choked. The proposed Tranche 2 will address these issues by improving water supply in South-East zone of Guwahati using surface water as a source, and provision of drainage infrastructure in Guwahati and Dibrugarh.
Impact Access to sustainable water supply, sanitation, and urban infrastructure facilities for the urban population in Guwahati and Dibrugarh cities of Assam improved.
Outcome Sustainable water supply in Guwahati and drainage system in Guwahati and Dibrugarh improved.
Outputs

Water supply infrastructure in Guwahati constructed to provide regular and sustainable metered water supply

Drainage system in Dibrugarh and Guwahati constructed

Project management capacity of implementing agencies and ULBs strengthened.
