Description The proposed Khulna Sewerage System Development Project (KSSDP) will develop a new sewerage system in Khulna, covering commercial and densely populated areas with about 850,000 population by 2027. The project will specifically support (i) establishment of two sewage treatment plants with a capacity of 80,000 cubic meter (m3) per day and one fecal sludge treatment plant of 160 m3 per day; (ii) construction of 269 kilometers of sewer network; (iii) around 27,000 property level sewer connections; (iv) capacity development of the Khulna Water Supply and Sewerage Authority; and (v) awareness-raising on sanitation and hygiene.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The project aims to establish a sustainable and inclusive sewerage system in Khulna, the third largest city in Bangladesh. Khulna's residents have been experiencing persistent urban service limitations, particularly in sewage management. As there is no sewerage system in Khulna, vast quantities of sewage and fecal sludge enter groundwater or surface drains causing clogging and serious environmental problems as well as public health risks.
