The pilot project will improve access to safe water in Tete settlement in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea (PNG). The community of 8,000 people is currently serviced by one standpipe which provides an intermittent and unpredictable water supply. Through the project, Tete residents will benefit from new water supply infrastructure, which will be managed at the community level. The intervention represents the piloting of a community-driven water supply in an informal settlement area with potential for scale-up or replication in PNG and regionally.
Grant assistance reports provide background information on the project including the rationale for grant funding rather than lending.
