This sub-programme is an autonomous component of the Millennium Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation sector Programme (PEPAM). This sub-programme is a component put in place by the Government of Senegal in 2005 to achieve the sector MDGs by 2015. The implementation of this sub-programme will strengthen and build on the experience of Senegalese and Bank implementation structures, particularly with regard to the construction and operation of multi-village drinking water supply structures that use poweroperated boreholes, as well as the choice of adequate technology for family sanitation. The project will improve the health conditions of the rural population by reducing waterborne diseases, particularly diarrhoea, which is the main cause of mortality, especially among children under five years old. Its implementation will cover four years (from July 2009 to June 2013) and cost a total of UA 33.42 million, exclusive of taxes. The major expected outcomes are the improvement of sustainable access to drinking water and sanitation, and positive change in the attitudes and behaviours of the population with respect to hygiene. The average rates of access to drinking water and sanitation in the sub-programme area will increase from 37% and 17% to 45% and 26% respectively between 2007 and 2013.
The objective of the Rural Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Sub-programme - Phase II in Senegal is to improve the health conditions of the approximately 1 790 600 inhabitants of Kaffrine, Tambacounda, Kolda, Sédhiou and Ziguinchor regions.
The second sub-programme will be implemented in the Kaffrine, Tambacounda, Kolda, Sedhiou and Bignona (Ziguinchor) regions with a total population of about 1 790 600 inhabitants. The implementation of these operations will help to meet the needs of about 800,000 people, including 162 000 directly concerned with drinking water infrastructures, 150,000 with sanitation infrastructures, and the entire population with the promotion of hygiene and support for the establishment of ASUFORs and transfer of equipment maintenance to private operators.
