The Bamako City Sanitation Project aims to fill much of the significant delay in equipment and sanitation infrastructures, faced by Bamako City. It is planned to be implemented in three phases. The first phase, which will be implemented over 48 months (2017-2021), will treat a wastewater volume of 600 m3 per day, amounting to 42 tonnes of dry matter, to ensure sanitation for a significant proportion of Bamako’s population. This operation is justified by the risk of deterioration of Bamako’s population health conditions. The current low level of access to an adequate sanitation system in Bamako (35%) greatly justifies the implementation of such a project. It will thus raise this rate up to 62%. In addition to improving sanitation services and the population's socio-sanitary conditions, the project will: (i) strengthen the organizational and institutional capacity of the National Sanitation, Pollution and Nuisance Control Department (DNACPN), the National Treatment Plants Management Agency in Mali (ANGESEM) and the Joint Intercommunal Union (SMI) to be created; ii) support women's, neighborhood and NGO associations to improve their levels of resilience in various activities (dyeing, pre-collection and recycling of solid waste, etc.); and (iii) generate direct and indirect jobs due to the large amount of project work and the implementation of some of them through the HIMO (High Intensity Main-Work) approach. For the next project's two phases (2022-2026 and 2027-2032), the system will gradually evolve towards the construction of wastewater collection systems and affiliated treatment plants.
The main objective of the project is to contribute to sustainable improvement of the sanitation, hygiene, health conditions of Bamako's population, and subsequently their living standards.
The project will benefit a population of approximately 680,000 people, representing 27% of Bamako’s inhabitants, 50.4% of whom are women. Part of this population includes displaced persons from the north of the country, following the political and security crisis. The project will also strengthen implementing entities' capacity namely, the National Sanitation, Pollution and Nuisance Control Department (DNACPN), the National Treatment Plants Management Agency in Mali (ANGESEM) and the Joint Intercommunal Union (SMI).
