Description

The project will support inclusive, resilient, and sustainable urban infrastructure and services in two rapidly growing cities in Punjab Province---Rawalpindi and Bahawalpur---by (i) expanding and modernizing urban water supply systems in Rawalpindi and solid waste collection, treatment, and disposal in Bahawalpur; and (ii) strengthening institutional capacity in service delivery to improve the quality, coverage, efficiency, and reliability of these services, as well as the financial sustainability of the utilities. The project will benefit up to 1.5 million urban dwellers in Punjab, the most populous province of the country.

The project is aligned with the following impacts: urban environment, health, and living conditions improved; natural ecosystems protected; and climate change impacts mitigated. The project will have the following outcome: sustainable, inclusive, resilient, and low-carbon municipal services in the cities of Rawalpindi and Bahawalpur in Punjab achieved.

Output 1: Climate-resilient water supply infrastructure and services provided in Rawalpindi. This output will establish new water supply systems using surface water resources. It will include (i) the construction of new surface water intakes and a water treatment plant of 54 million liters per day (MLD) at Chahan Dam, transmission main and distribution pipes to serve continuous water to 82,000 households with metered connections in eight new union councils in the southwest part of Rawalpindi, powered by renewable energy from 20 megawatts of solar panels (NRW will be managed under 20%); (ii) the upgrading of water pumps and transmission mains to augment surface water supply to the city from Rawal (22 MLD) and Khanpur dams (39 MLD) (NRW will be reduced through network improvement and more paying customers to R-WASA); and (iii) the establishment of three pilot district metering areas with a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system to ensure continuous and pressurized water supply with metered connections to the Khayaban-e-Sir Syed area, comprising 11,000 households in three union councils (NRW will be reduced to 30%). To mitigate pollution from the discharge of untreated sewage, the output will also include an update of the sector master plan for wastewater and drainage systems of the city, feasibility study preparation, and engineering designs for future intervention in the sanitation sector.

Output 2: Low-carbon, integrated solid waste management services implemented in Bahawalpur. The output will upgrade the SWM system in Bahawalpur through a holistic approach, including (i) procuring waste collection equipment and new fleet to expand the service to complete city coverage; (ii) pilot-testing a prepaid trash bag scheme in at least one union council to partially cover waste management fees; (iii) establishing a combined transfer station and material recovery facility for processing recyclable materials; (iv) constructing a new flood-proof engineered landfill (3.4 million cubic meters), with engineering measures and onsite operations to mitigate emissions of GHG and leachate; (v) closing and remediating the existing dump site; (vi) providing personal protective equipment to informal sector workers; and (vii) procuring a fleet management information system based on a geographic information system and the global positioning system.

Output 3: Institutional and capacity development for climate resilience, gender inclusiveness, and sustainability improved. This output will carry forward the adoption of the business models of R-WASA and B-WMC, prepared under the PRF, to improve operational efficiency, inclusivity, and financial sustainability. The utilities' operation and service performance standards will be developed and monitored through an independent performance monitoring system. The implementation of a road map for institutional reform will also be supported, including (i) developing and institutionalizing a gender-responsive SWM policy and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) policy to align with the National Water Policy (2018) and the Punjab Water Act, 2019; and (ii) examining Punjab's legal framework on municipal service delivery and tariff reform, including volumetric billing. A capacity development program will improve the knowledge of R-WASA and B-WMC on planning and O&M, financial and asset management, procurement, engaging the private sector and increasing women's participation in municipal services. Output 3 will be supported by an institutional development consultant, as well as complementary behavioral change and communication campaigns by the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). R-WASA will receive trainings on NRW management and benefit from water operator partnerships, to be supported by the attached TA. With the additional water supplied and improved quality of service, a targeted awareness-raising program will aim to attract more paying customers and reduce commercial losses (illegal connections) and groundwater abstraction (pumping from own tube wells).

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Background. Pakistan's cities are economic engines that generate 55% of its gross domestic product. Punjab, known as the breadbasket of Pakistan, is home to 53% of the country's population and 53% of the urban population. The province's population is expected to grow from 110 million (49% women and 51% men) in 2017 to about 179 million by 2040. About 42% of its population will be living in urban areas by 2040, up from 37% in 2017. Rapid growth in Punjab's urban population (2.74% per year) and infrastructure deficits from lack of investment, especially in basic water supply and solid waste management (SWM) services, place tremendous strain on its cities. Inadequate infrastructure and limited capacity to manage municipal services are causing major health risks and environmental degradation and compounding the negative effects of climate change. In Punjab, only about 36% of the urban population has access to safely managed drinking water (i.e., an improved drinking water source, located on the premises, free of microbial contamination), with poor and vulnerable groups having the least access to piped water. Pakistan is one of the 10 weakest countries in managing plastic waste in Asia and the Pacific. Municipal solid waste (MSW) in Punjab totals about 18 million tons per year, with only half of the waste collected. Waste is largely burned or dumped openly, which leads to poor living conditions, health hazards, uncontrolled greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, environmental pollution, and reduced economic potential.

Government strategy. The Government of Pakistan, realizing the importance of making its cities more livable, has placed urban sector development at the forefront of its development plan. Pakistan's Framework for Economic Growth envisages livable cities as engines of growth and centers of economic activity, culture, and knowledge. The Punjab Growth Strategy acknowledges that cities are key to social and economic development; and increased investment in municipal services is essential for the sustainable growth and improved livability of cities. Both water supply and SWM have emerged as priority focus areas of adaptation and mitigation in Pakistan's updated nationally determined contributions.

Climate change risks. Pakistan ranks eighth on the Global Climate Risk Index for 2000-2019, and the country is becoming increasingly exposed to natural hazards, particularly floods, heatwaves, droughts, and cyclones. The key climate change risks include (i) increased water scarcity and droughts because of higher evapotranspiration losses, and changes in upstream water flow from the earlier glacial melt caused by rising temperatures; (ii) heightened flood risk and reduced groundwater recharge because of extreme and erratic rainfall events and uncollected waste clogging the drainage system; (iii) extended heat waves and heat island effect in urban areas; (iv) methane emissions during anaerobic decomposition of organics because of uncontrolled dumping of waste; and (v) emissions of black carbon, a short-lived climate pollutant, from the burning of waste.

Water supply and sanitation. Rawalpindi, adjacent to the capital Islamabad, is the fourth most populous city in Pakistan. It is serviced by the Rawalpindi Water and Sanitation Agency (R-WASA), with 1.72 million people in its jurisdiction area, but only provides piped water supply to 55% of the households, none of which is metered. Most localities are served 2-3 days per week, a maximum of 3 hours per day. Domestic users are charged a flat rate for the water bill. The billing and collection ratio by R-WASA is estimated at 70%, insufficient to cover its operation and maintenance (O&M) cost. R-WASA receives a subsidy from the provincial government, but it is not enough to cover its operating deficit. Rawalpindi's water supply system is further constrained by nonrevenue water (NRW) above 60%. About 70% of the water resources are extracted from groundwater, increasing the vulnerability of municipal water supply to declining groundwater levels. There is an urgent need to diversify water supply sources and improve operational efficiency and financial viability to expand the service. Only about 35% of the population is served by a combined sewerage system, which is 50-70 years old, and unable to cater to the wastewater generated by its growing population. Rawalpindi does not have functional wastewater treatment facilities, and raw sewage flows into drains and rivers untreated. Women are disproportionately affected by inadequate water supply, as gender roles require them to fetch water for household use.

Solid waste management. Bahawalpur is serviced by Bahawalpur Waste Management Company (B-WMC). B-WMC is mandated to provide waste collection service to the 21 union councils (115,000 households) within the municipal boundary, but only covers 75,000 households in 18 union councils. MSW generation is estimated at 433 tons/day, and collection at an average of 295 tons/day. Uncollected waste is burned or disposed of in public spaces or drains, causing air pollution and exacerbating the risk of urban local flooding. Primary collection is largely based on communal containers (with a capacity of 0.8-5.0 cubic meters), with door-to-door collection estimated at 20% in 2022. Collection involves the transfer of waste using handcarts and mini tippers to large containers. Arm roll trucks and compactors pick up waste from these containers and a single small transfer station and transport it to the dump site. The dump site, which started operations in 2016, occupies 60,000 square meters. Dumped waste is prone to spontaneous ignition and fires, and no engineering controls are in place to mitigate GHG emissions or groundwater pollution by leachate. Pakistan does not have an overarching national or provincial SWM policy, formal recycling program, or multi-bin system; and public awareness on waste minimization and segregation is nonexistent. Recycling is dominated by the informal sector, recovering an estimated 20 tons/day (4%-5% of the total waste volumes). SWM fees in Bahawalpur are not levied, except through service agreements with a few private housing societies. MSW collection, transfer, and disposal systems are inefficient, and the services are constrained by lack of human resources, equipment, facilities, cost recovery for services, and private sector involvement. Poor collection and improper waste disposal pose environmental risks and impact livability.

Institutional issues. Water and sanitation agencies, including R-WASA established in 1992, fall under the Housing, Urban Development and Public Health Engineering Department (HUD&PHED) of Punjab, which is responsible for the planning, design, and construction of water supply and sanitation infrastructure, and O&M of these assets in five major cities of the province. For SWM, seven autonomous waste management companies are responsible for SWM services in their respective cities and operate under a service and asset management arrangement with the Local Government and Community Development Department (LG&CDD) of Punjab. Both R-WASA and B-WMC lack the technical, financial, and organizational resources to effectively plan new investments and deliver services. The operations are characterized by low efficiency, poor service standards, haphazard O&M, and weak financial and asset management. No performance standards are in place, and no independent regulatory body monitors performance, regulates tariffs, and provides oversight. Women's representation and participation in public sector decision-making is disproportionately low (13%), resulting in a lack of understanding of their needs. The utilities require support in (i) reforming tariff structures for O&M cost recovery, (ii) improving service quality and customer satisfaction, (iii) identifying opportunities for private sector participation, (iv) strengthening capacity in human resources management, and (v) improving the regulatory environment.
