Description

On 25 October 2012, Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved a multitranche financing facility (MFF) of $300 million, envisaged to be funded from ADB s Ordinary Capital Resources (OCR) and Asian Development Fund (ADF), for the Greater Colombo Water and Wastewater Management Improvement Investment Program (the Investment Program). Tranche 1 ($84 million) under the Investment Program was approved by the President on 22 November 2012. The MFF is envisaged to comprise three additional tranches as follows: $88 million (Project 2 in 2013); $90 million (Project 3 in 2015); and $38 million (Project 4 in 2016). Tranches 1 and 2 focus on reducing non-revenue water (NRW) and improving water service efficiency in Greater Colombo. Tranches 3 and 4 will support improvement of wastewater collection and treatment facilities and management services in Greater Colombo. The Framework Financing Agreement (FFA) for the Investment Program was signed on 12 September 2012.

The Government submitted to ADB a periodic financing request (PFR) for Project 2, on 3 June 2013 (Appendix 1). The proposed Project 2 will continue investments in water supply, NRW reduction in the south part of Colombo city, and water supply service improvements for National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB). The proposed Project 2 will also support the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) to complete the project preparation activities for the wastewater investments under Projects 3 and 4. The proposed Project 2 will include: (i) $80 million ADB loan from both OCR and ADF for investments in water supply improvements and NRW reduction; and (ii) $8 million ADB loan from ADF support for the CMC for advance action on wastewater investments. The ADB's Country Operations Business Plan, 2013-2015, for Sri Lanka includes a firm provision for Project 2 in 2013.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Government of Sri Lanka (Government) targets for 2015, according to the Water and Sanitation Sector Assessment Strategy and Roadmap are to increase the proportion of: (i) households with sustainable access to safe drinking water to 86%; and (ii) the population with access to improved sanitation to 93%. Significant progress has been made towards achieving these targets. During the period 1990-2004: (i) the population with access to improved water sources increased from 91% to 98%, and from 62% to 74% in urban and rural areas , respectively; and (ii) the population with access to sanitation countrywide, increased from 69% to 91% . However, the overall coverage of piped water supply is still very low at about 30%, and only 3% of the total population is connected to a piped wastewater system. About 95% of Colombo is covered by a piped water supply system. However, the system has low and fluctuating system pressure; some areas of the city receive water for an average of only 6 10 hours a day. Many parts of the distribution network were built more than 100 years ago. NRW remains around 49%. The Investment Program responds to the urgent need to rehabilitate and expand water supply and wastewater facilities in Greater Colombo and to improve the operational efficiency of service and management in water supply and wastewater sectors. The MFF will fund about 20% of the $1.5 billion financing needed by the Government for its investment plan for water and sanitation in Greater Colombo.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Project 2 is classified as category B for environment. IEE was prepared for investment under proposed Project 2 in accordance to ADB's Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS), 2009. The IEE shows that the net environmental benefits to the population is positive and large, as a result of improved water efficiency and security through the implementation of NRW reduction programs and expansion and rehabilitation of water supply infrastructure. The IEE outlines a grievance redress mechanism to ensure easy and quick redress of any complaints or concerns during project implementation. The EMP provides adequate mitigation measures for any foreseen temporary construction impacts, including traffic management to ensure limited disruption to traffic flow and access. Support from the consultants is ensured that the PMUs have adequate capacity to manage any environmental impact during detailed design and construction. The EMP contained within the IEE is form part of the bidding and contract documents.
