The present project will allow Government of Sierra Leone to attract funds for sustainable infrastructure investments. The project is consistent with related national strategies in Sierra Leone. It will allow Guma Valley Water Corporation (GWVC), and as well as development partners, to prioritize investments in water supply and sanitation and related Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) aspects to maximise effect and efficiency. The project’s immediate outcomes will contribute to improved livelihood and sustainable human development through reduced water borne disease incidence and infant mortality. It will provide three main outputs: (i) An established IUWM co-ordination mechanism is operational, (ii) Freetown Integrated Water Supply Master plan is enacted, and (iii) Prioritised and medium term investment projects are prepared. The total duration is 30 months with a cost amounts to Euro 2,972,570.
The overall project goal is the preparation of effective and efficient short and medium term investments into the water supply system of Greater Freetown. The project’s immediate outcomes will be twofold: 1) activities in and related to water resources management in Freetown are being coordinated among relevant stakeholders and 2) Investments for Greater Freetown (including the proposed new airport and satellite city) Water Supply and Sanitation Improvement and Expansion can be mobilised. These outcomes will contribute to sustainable human development through reduced water borne disease incidence and infant mortality.
The beneficiaries of this project are the population of Greater Freetown Area, who either do not have access to clean water, or have access that is intermittent and unreliable. Children under five and their predominately female caretakers will be mainly affected.
