The Water Sector Investment Project Phase 2 (PISEAU II) is the second phase of a sector investment project that uses a programme approach to determine annual investments. PISEAU II is involved in the last segments of mobilization of water resources and access to drinking water and is an innovative project that promotes efficient IWRM through the establishment of a National Information System for Water Resources (SINEAU) and participatory management by the GDAs. The project will help improve their living conditions through intensification of irrigated agriculture and better supply of drinking water; it will also create conditions for adaptation to climate change. Implementation of the project will begin in 2009 and cover a five-year period. It will also cover the entire country, using a programme approach based on investment eligibility criteria. It is intended to be a tool for managing water scarcity by anchoring beneficiary participation in the management of resources and infrastructures and promoting appropriate pricing systems. The total project cost is EUR 122.01 million (TD 215.98 million), or EUR101.75 million, net of all taxes.
The main objective of PISEAU II is to promote efficient irrigation management, improve access to drinking water, and enable the Tunisian authorities to take more informed decisions about integrated water resources management (IWRM).
The project’s direct beneficiaries are Tunisia’s rural population spread across all the country’s 24 governorates, especially the most disadvantaged population. The project will help to create IPs on 2,500 ha and improve infrastructures on 20,000 ha, leading to improved performance for 10% of the 220,000 ha of public irrigated areas in Tunisia, and thereby affecting the lives of 67,000 inhabitants. Through the project, some 50,000 additional rural inhabitants will enjoy drinking water supply, representing 16% of the 299,000 rural inhabitants that currently have no pipe water, and thereby contributing to progress towards the target coverage rate of 97% at the end of the 11th Plan (by 2011).
