Tajikistan: Additional Financing for Dushanbe Water Supply and Sanitation Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 50347-004 Status: Active

The additional financing is needed to expand the scope of the current project to complement it with the planned short-term water supply and sanitation investments that were envisaged in the CDIA feasibility study . In particular, the AF will finance: (i) the rehabilitation of water supply network in the remaining 12 DMAs established in the Shomansur district under the ongoing project and construct additional facilities at water source locations (wells, pumping stations) as well as rehabilitation of existing reservoir, etc.; and (ii) replacement of further portions of the main sewerage pipeline (Ayni and Muhammad collectors) and expansion of the network to unserved areas such as Karotegin and Zebunisso areas. Climate-proofing measures identified during project design will increase resilience of water supply services and sanitation systems

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The additional financing will provide additional support to the ongoing institutional strengthening activities to improve the O&M and financial management, billing, and commercial practices. It will continue supporting the establishment of a performance-oriented management information system with the use of SCADA system for operational efficiency and geographic information system (GIS) for asset management and for efficient monitoring of DMAs and improved operational and business efficient service delivery by the State Unitary Enterprise Dushanbevodokanal (DVK).

The additional financing will improve network management and leak detection practices and foster the use of performance-based interventions for asset inventory, leak detection, and small replacement works carried out by both VDK teams and small private service operators. It will also build the capacity of DVK on COVID-19 Emergency response and immediate actions and WASH awareness and WASH targeted programs and measures for vulnerable people and women. The establishment of a women's training and empowerment center is proposed as a specific project gender-focused output. The center will provide vocational, leadership, and business skills trainings to create the necessary opportunities to help women realize their full potential and improve employment opportunities for women working in VDK, City Administration, and other groups. It will also encourage the education and skills training of young women. Moreover, the center will provide counseling, rehabilitation, and shelter services for victims of gender-based violence.
