Project General Description

The Semi-urban and Rural Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Programme (PAEPA SU-MR) in Chad concerns Eleven Regions (Borkou, Ennedi, Tibesti, Mayo-Kebbi, Tanjile, Logone Oriental, Logone Occidental, Mandoul, Moyen-Chari, Salamat and Sila). The programme stems from the Kigali Action Plan (KAP) initiative adopted by African Union Heads of State and Government to assist the member countries that failed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the water and sanitation sector. At the 2015 deadline, Chad did not attain most of the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets. This Phase I covers five priority regions with a water access rate of less than 30% in 2018. These regions include Borkou (WAR: 19%, population: 120 104), Ennedi (WAR: 8%, population: 77 795), Tibesti (WAR: 5%, population: 32 704), Logone Oriental (WAR: 27%, population: 1 026 242) and Logone Occidental (WAR: 16%, population: 907 338). PAEPA SU-MR Phase 1 will cost UA 16.67 million, net of taxes and custom duties.

Project Objectives

The expected outcomes at the end of Phase I of the programme are: increase in the water access rate from 15% in 2018 to 49.65% in 2021 and in the sanitation service access rate from 16% in 2018 to 36% in 2021; reduction in the distance to water sources from 10 kilometres to less than 500 metres.


The beneficiary population is estimated at 2 164 183 million (750 000 additional people or direct beneficiaries for drinking water and 364 000 additional people for sanitation), 54% of them women. This number represents 14.55% of Chad’s total population (14 876 609 in 2017).
