Project General Description

The present project aims to address the challenge of Kinshasa drinking water supply and sanitation (DWSS) through the adoption of a new approach: Integrated Water Management (GIEU), which proposes a holistic vision of water and sanitation management. This support is intended for the preparation and development of a GIEU master plan for Kinshasa as well as a feasibility study concerning the supply of drinking water to the western part of the city, where nearly 3.5 million inhabitants live, without adequate water facilities. The proposed intervention in this framework has a duration of 30 months and is articulated around three (03) components, namely: a) Development of a master plan of the GIEU of Kinshasa and feasibility study of the drinking water supply and sanitation for West Kinshasa; (b) capacity building; and c) project management.

Project Objectives

At the sectoral level, the project will contribute to improving the resilience of Kinshasa's populations to the uncertainties related to climate change through the provision of sustainable, equitable and sustainable water supply services; particularly through increased capacity for planning, mobilization and investment management; monitoring of interventions in the water and sanitation sector of the Government of the DRC. At the regional level, this project will serve as a full-scale reference for its duplication in other cities in the region.


The immediate beneficiaries of the project are the Ministry of Energy and Hydraulic Resources, the Ministry of Planning, the Ministry of Environment, the Province of Kinshasa, the National Directorate of Sanitation and REGIDESO. Once the acquired financing and the investments made, the beneficiaries represent the whole population of present and future Kinshasa by 2030: the populations of the low-income neighborhoods, in particular the women, will benefit particularly from the implementation of this project.
