The proposed operation is about Phase I of the Small Cities (of less than 10,000 Inhabitants) Sanitation Programme in Tunisia. This programme consists in developing sanitation services (networks, pumping stations and treatment plants) in small towns of less than 10,000 inhabitants. Phase I of the programme concerns 33 towns spread over 19 Governorates countrywide forming part of the priority intervention programme of ONAS identified by the techno-economic and institutional study for these small towns, financed by an MIC grant. Its design was based on the priority needs identified by ONAS in its performance contract with the State for 2016-2020. The bulk of towns under the programme lack sanitation and purification facilities. Phase I of the programme is designed to address the health and environmental needs of these 33 towns up to 2030 and will benefit a total population of about 190 000 inhabitants. Its implementation, whose total cost is estimated at EUR 163.3 million (approximately UA 134.8 million), is expected to span 60 months (Q4 2018 – Q4 2023).
The programme will improve the sanitation system connection rate in less-favoured areas, thus improving its basic infrastructure, promote economic development and increase its attractiveness, and lastly improve the quality of life for inhabitants and their natural environment health. It will consist of: (i) development of sanitation infrastructure (primary and secondary networks, transfer networks, pumping stations, and treatment plants) and (ii) capacity building and institutional support.
The programme will benefit a total population of about 190,000 in small towns located in regions that are among the least favoured.
