Project General Description

The proposed program is part of the National Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Program (NUWSSP) which Goverment Government of Republic of Zambia is implementing aimed at improving service provision in all urban settlements. The Program aims to increase access, quality and sustainability of water supply and sanitation services in twelve (12) towns located in four Provinces served by Western, Luapula and Chambeshi Water & Sewerage Companies as well as ensure effective management and operation of the water supply and sewerage facilities on commercial principles. The main program outcomes include (i) increase in proportion of residents accessing improved water supply and sanitation, (ii) increased hours of water supply, (iii) increased revenue collection efficiency and (iv) reduction in Non-Revenue Water (NRW). The program is to be implemented over 48 months beginning in January 2017 at a cost of USD 150.57 million.

Project Objectives

The Program Development Objective is to increase access, quality and sustainability of water supply and sanitation services in the four Provinces served by Western Water & Sewerage Company, Luapula Water & Sewerage Company and Chambeshi Water & Sewerage Company as well as ensure effective management and operation of the water supply and sewerage facilities on commercial principles.

Beneficiaries

At completion in 2020, the program will benefit 639,927 people directly and an additional 287,212 beneficiaries indirectly, who live around the targeted towns. Residents will gain better health from increased access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation, women and school going children will benefit particularly from utilisation of time earlier spent on collecting water for income generating activities as well as improved school enrolment and retention of girls. There will also be benefits from employment/livelihood opportunities generated by the program, training of artisans (30% women) and empowerment of women and youth groups for possible business along the water and sanitation value chain and catchment management.
