The present intervention concerns the Rural Drinking Water and Sanitation Project (PEPA-MR). It will provide drinking water supply and sanitation facilities to contribute to universal access to drinking water and sanitation. The project provides for the construction of: (i) 200 boreholes equipped with human operated pumps (HOP); 15 simplified drinking water supply (SDWS) systems, (ii) 11,000 family latrines, and (iii) 50 latrine blocks in institutions (schools and health centres) and public places. With a view to ownership and sustainability of the DWSS facilities, the project will carry out IEC campaigns for behavioural change on water, sanitation, hygiene, nutrition1 and gender. Lastly, the project will support capacity building for intervention structures and other actors such as municipal officers, pump repairers, standpipe managers, water user associations (WUA), and the training of young people (girls and boys) in the water and sanitation professions. The project consists of three components: (1) development and management of gender-sensitive drinking water and sanitation infrastructure; (2) studies, communication and capacity building; and (3) project coordination and management.
The project aims to sustainably improve the quality of life for the people of the Centre-West and Centre-South Regions. Its specific objectives are to (i) increase the drinking water access rate in the Centre-West Region from 70% in 2018 to 84% in 2025, while access in the Centre-South would rise from 85% in 2018 to 92% in 2025, (ii) increase the sanitation access rate in the Centre-West Region from 15% in 2018 to 39% in 2025, and in the Centre-South Region from 10% to 35% in 2025, (iii) increase the employability of young people (girls and boys), (iv) ensure sustainable management of drinking water and sanitation infrastructure and (v) prepare an investment project.
The project will take place in an area with an estimated population of 2,020,000 inhabitants. The direct beneficiaries of the drinking water supply and sanitation (DWSS) facilities are estimated at 157,500 for drinking water and 110,000 for sanitation. With the support of information, education and communication (IEC) campaigns, approximately 700,000 persons, including 300,000 for drinking water and 400,000 for sanitation, hygiene and nutrition, or 34.6% of the area’s population, of which 54% women, will be sensitised.
