Project General Description

The Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Project in Eight Secondary Centres and Surrounding Rural Areas is a continuation of the on-going Rural Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Programme (PNEAR). It stems from studies on fifteen secondary centres financed by the Bank. It is in keeping with Government strategy to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDG), the 2010-2014 RBCSP and the Government’s 2010-2014 Action Plan, which is an offshoot of the Water and Sanitation Master Plan (2003-2020 WSMP). It covers the four regions of Tandjilé, Mayo-Kebbi East, Mayo-Kebbi West and Mandoul. By 2017, the following access rates would have been achieved in the target areas: 60% for drinking water (compared to 32% in 2011) and 30% for sanitation (compared to 11% in 2011). The average water-borne disease prevalence rate should fall from 23% to 16% over the period. The project should be implemented over five years. Costing UA 22.58 million, it should be financed from the resources of ADF, the RWSSI Trust Fund and contributions from the Government and beneficiaries.

Project Objectives

The project goal is to contribute to improving the living conditions of the population of secondary centres and the surrounding rural areas by increasing access to safe water and an improved sanitation system.


The project should directly benefit about 802,300 people( approximately 30% of the project area’s population) by 2017, in terms of drinking water, and 152,437 people for improved sanitation. Thus the average disease prevalence rate related to water and sanitation will fall from 23 % in 2010 to 16% in 2017. The project should create 800 temporary jobs during the implementation phase and on completion, about 474 full-time jobs, 52% of which will be for women. In addition, the MHUR, MSP, municipalities, Water Point Management Committees ( WPMCs), Water User Associations (WUAs) and the Management Advisory and Support Unit (CCAG) should benefit from capacity building in planning and project management. The private sector should benefit from the project by participating in contracts for goods, works and services.
