Project General Description

The Water Supply and Sanitation Sector Project (PSEA) includes (i) a rural component designed to improve access to drinking water supply and sanitation for the populations of the Louga, Kaffrine and Tambacounda regions, following the two previous Bank's operations; and (ii) an urban component to rehabilitate and extend the Dakar and Ziguinchor sanitation networks. The project will also contribute to improving the sector's governance through: (i) the establishment of an appropriate monitoring and evaluation mechanism; (ii) implementation of the action plan for integrated water resources management; (iii) support to privatized management of rural drinking water facilities.

Project Objectives

The project’s main objective is to increase Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation (DWSS) access rate. The project will also help strengthening the sector's governance through the establishment of a monitoring mechanism. It will also contribute to the implementation of the integrated water resources management action plan, and will support privatised drinking water management in rural areas.


The project covers the Louga, Kaffrine and Tambacoundaregions for DWSS in rural areas, and the cities of Dakar and Ziguinchor for urban sanitation. The project's direct beneficiaries are the populations of the three target regions (Louga, Kaffrine and Tambacounda), estimated at 500,000 persons in rural areas and 250,000 persons in urban areas, representing a total of 750,000 persons, 52% of whom are women. In addition, the project’s implementation will create more than 5,000 temporary jobs and 500 permanent jobs for women and youth.
