Description

The project will improve the performance of provincial water utilitiess and expand access to safe piped water supply and sanitaton for urban residents in small towns in the Lao PDR. The project will contribute to the government's urban sector targets - 90% coverage for piped water supply and 100% coverage for sanitation by 2030 by improving sector coordination and policy implementation in corporatization, improving nonrevenue water management and expanding water supply in povincial towns, developing new water supply systems in small towns, enhancing community action in urban water supply and sanitation and strengthening capacity for project implementation and operation and maintenance.

The project impact will be expanded access to quality and reliable piped water supply and sanitation services for the urban population in the Lao PDR. The outcome will be improved performance of participating water utilities in delivering sustainable water supply and sanitation services.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Lao PDR population in 2011 was estimated as 6.4 million, of whom a third reside in five large urban centers and 150 small towns in 144 districts.1 Urban centers in the Lao PDR are increasingly important to its economy. Gross domestic product was estimated at $1,270 per capita in 2011 and $1,422 in 2012. The Lao PDR is beginning to realize gains from investments in infrastructure, economic and social development. The poverty rate declined to 28% in 2008 and is projected to fall by 1% per annum.2

2. The development of small district towns with 4,000 20,000 population as key administrative and economic centers is an important step to improve living conditions and public health, strengthen urban rural linkages, generate employment, and narrow regional income disparities. Infrastructure development and service delivery improvements in towns, particularly along the Greater Mekong Subregion transport corridors or in the vicinity of significant tourism attractions, help to transform them into economic and tourism hubs. Increased access to safe, piped urban water supply and improved sanitation systems and enhanced provincial water utilities, called provincial nam papas (PNPs) service delivery play a vital role in the small towns by supporting economic development and improving the health profiles of urban residents.

Impact Expanded access to quality and reliable piped water supply and sanitation services for the urban population in Lao PDR.
