Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Water Sector Reform Study. The project is in line with the need to prioritize and accelerate sector reform and development and to undertake rehabilitation to the Water and Sanitation infrastructure in post-conflict countries of Africa. It is also aligned with strategies to meet MDGs and with the Africa Water Vision Framework for Action. The project together with the efforts of the other donors in the sector should assist with the most critical needs for sector reform. Its main outputs are: (i) sector reform plans involving capacity building, implementation of the recent adopted IWRM policy and institutional restructuring, (ii) short (2010) to medium (2012-2015) term investment plans and (iii) organizational and human capacity in the area of IWRM and Capital Investment Planning strengthened through functional training delivered to about 200 staff. It comprises three main components, namely: (1) Sector Reform Study, (2) Functional Training, and (3) Project management.
