Project General Description

The present intervention is related to the Strategic Towns Water Supply and Sanitation Project (STWSSP). It aims to support the Government of Uganda’s efforts to achieve sustainable provision of safe water and hygienic sanitation for the urban population by the year 2030. The STWSSP will also contribute to improved health and productivity of the population in the targeted towns across the country. The project is expected to improve the quality of service and the supply of water and sanitation facilities to towns, including women and children who bear most of the cost of water scarcity. In addition, it will also improve management and functioning of water supply and sanitation systems. This will be achieved by investing in water supply and sanitation infrastructure in ten district headquarter towns across the country. The STWSSP has three components, namely: (i) urban water supply, (ii) improved urban sanitation and environmental management, and (iii) sector program support.

Project Objectives

The purpose of the project is to support the Government of Uganda’s efforts to achieve sustainable provision of safe water and hygienic sanitation for the urban population with improved resilience to climate change effects by the year 2030.

Beneficiaries

The primary beneficiaries of the project will be residents of ten towns spread across the country, namely : Kyenjojo-Katooke (Kyenjojo District), Nakasongola (Nakasongola District), Kayunga-Busana (Kayunga District), Kamuli (Kamuli District), Kapchworwa (Kapchorwa District), Dokolo (Dokolo District), Bundibugyo (Bundibugyo District) and Buikwe (Buikwe District). The project will provide additional access to water and sanitation to 390,000 people by 2023. The residents of the towns will benefit from a much more regular supply of water and from improved wastewater and septic sludge collection and treatment services.
