Project General Description

The proposed Project is complementary to the first Sectoral Sub-Programme on Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation (PSEPA) of the Central African Republic, initially adopted in 2012, then restructured following the crisis that occurred in March 2013. The interventions concerned by this Additional Project are in continuity with the first sub-programme and go beyond the urban area. They are structured around three components: (i) Capacity building (logistics, training and consultants) of the ANEA, DGH, PSEPA and DGEES branches, as well as those of local actors and beneficiaries, particularly in training, awareness-raising and small trades; (ii) Development of drinking water and sanitation infrastructures; and (iii) Management of the additional project. The targeted areas are: Mambéré Kadéï, Nana Mambéré and Ouham, three prefectures with extreme poverty levels.

Project Objectives

The objective of the project is to improve the Quality of Life of the rural populations of Mambéré-Kadéï, Nana-Mambéré and Ouham, through better access to drinking water, sanitation services and small businesses (craftsmen, repairers, quarry operators, rural trail planners, masons, etc.). Specifically, the implementation of the Additional Project will make it possible to: (i) from a current drinking water access rate of 12% to over 22.5% in Mambéré Kadéï; from 14% to 22.5% in Nana Mambéré; and from 36% to 51.5% in Ouham prefecture in 2019; and (ii) the very significant increase in the sanitation access rate from 1.7% in 2012 to 10% in 2019.


The beneficiaries of the intervention are: the rural populations of Mambéré-Kadéï, Nana-Mambéré and Ouham.
