Project General Description

This program supports institutional and policy reforms, capacity development as well as infrastructure investments. It will support the medium to long-term effort of establishing the coordination platform for the stakeholders in order to improve the sector planning, monitoring and evaluation based on common information base and understanding. At the state level, the program will ensure complementarity with other ongoing activities being funded by the government, non governmental organizations (NGOs) and DPs. The total cost is estimated at UA 17.582 million. The program is expected to be implemented over 54 months starting January 2016. Its expected outputs include: 1) Water sector policy and institutional reforms supported for the better efficiency of the water and sanitation sector; 2) Capacity development for federal and state staff and community supported for improved services and livelihoods; and 3) Water supply points and sanitation facilities provided for the improved resilience and stability.

Project Objectives

The objective of the program is to contribute to building a resilient and sustainable water and sanitation sector that meets the needs of all users or beneficiaries in Sudan in particular West Kordofan State with a view to contribute to peace building, improving livelihoods and building resilience against climate variability and change.
