The present project focuses on conducting studies for the preparation of an investment program for the construction of 300 mini-grids for drinking water supply in rural areas of Cameroon. This is a Government response to the difficulties that hinder the development of the rural water sub-component. The project aims to improve the efficiency of investments in the drinking water and sanitation sub-sector. This project will also mobilize the funds needed to finance the construction works of the mini-grids for which the studies are carried out. In the long term, the program resulting from these studies will contribute to improving the rate of access to drinking water in the localities selected and the sustainability, management, regularity of the water service and monitoring and evaluation of existing water supply works and to be built in rural areas. The main components of the project are: (i) studies; (ii) institutional support as well as (iii) project management and coordination.
The objective of the project is to improve the efficiency of investments in the drinking water and sanitation sub-sector through the activities of studies, capacity building and collection and storage of key information for the management of water and sanitation in Cameroon.
The main beneficiaries of the project are the populations covered by these studies which could reach more than 900,000 inhabitants. To these populations, the population of the 200 villages selected for the FDAL operation should be added to eradicate the practice of open defecation. In addition, through its capacity building activities, the project will benefit the Ministry of Water and Energy, Municipalities and Small and Medium Enterprises.
