Project General Description

The present support concerns an ADF loan of UA 19.0 million to the Government of Uganda (GoU) as additional funding to the ongoing Kampala Sanitation Program (KSP) to ensure its competition and achievement of its objective. The KSP is set to address the most pressing sanitation needs for the capital City. It is part of the long-term sanitation development Program for Kampala up to 2033, elaborated in the Kampala Sanitation Master Plan study of 2004. The main expected outputs are a refurbished sewerage system including 53,000 m3/d waste water plants, 400 m3/d feacal sludge treatment plants and sewer network and treatment if the effluent going into the Murchison bay. This program is considered vital to the protection of Kampala’s natural environment but it is experiencing a funding shortfall. The additional financing can therefore lead to completion of the outputs and yield benefits to the country in one year.

Project Objectives

The main objective of the program is to support the Government's efforts to ensure a sustainable supply of sanitation facilities with easy access for 1.4 million Ugandans in the capital Kampala. Specific program objectives include expanding access to sanitation services in the capital, reducing water-borne diseases, improving the quality of effluent discharged into Lake Victoria and the protection of the catchment areas of the city.


The direct beneficiaries of the program will be the population of Kampala which was estimated at appraisal to be 1.4 million and the people living along the nearby shores of Lake Victoria., The program will improve public health in the City and curtail water and sanitation related diseases. The main plant will generate power and will also treat effluent from the contaminated main channel draining the city before it empties into the lake.
