Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The objective of the project is to strength institutions and policies to increase access and improve rural sanitation services in selected governorates in Egypt.

Phase 1 of the Program (SRSSP-1) is already under implementation by the WB. Phase 2, the SRSSP-2, is proposed to be jointly co-cofinanced by the AIIB and the WB, in both cases. The SRSSP-2 comprises a physical infrastructure component, which will provide sanitation services to about 175,000 households in 133 villages of five governorates; namely, Dakahliya, Sharkiya, Damietta, Menoufya, and Gharbiya. The works include:

  1. construction of new or expansion/rehabilitation of existing wastewater treatment plants;
  2. construction and upgrading of pumping stations; and
  3. construction of integrated sewerage networks consisting of collectors and pumping mains.

The SRSSP-2 will also ensure that inhabitants of satellites located between the villages where the main sewers pass are also serviced. This will help to maximize the program’s development impacts. The SRSSP-2 also comprises a component to strengthen the related institutions and policies for the water and sanitation sector, by:

  1. improving the governorate-level water supply companies’ operational systems and practices;
  2. strengthening the national water and sanitation sector framework, including the sector's institutions, policy, and monitoring and evaluation
    framework; and
  3. introducing an Investment Project Financing (IPF) component for Technical Assistance on strategic sector issues.

The WB would support both physical infrastructure and institutional and policy strengthening components.
The AIIB Bank would only support the physical infrastructure component.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.



The AIIB has established the Accountability Mechanism for Project-Affected People (PPM).  The PPM provides “an opportunity for an independent and impartial review of submissions from Project-affected people who believe they have been or are likely to be adversely affected by AIIB’s failure to implement the ESP in situations when their concerns cannot be addressed satisfactorily through Project level GRMs or AIIB Management processes.” Two or more project-affected people can file a complaint.  Under the current AIIB policy, when the bank co-finances a project with another development bank, it may apply the other bank's standards. You can refer to the Project Summary Information document to find out which standards apply.  You can learn more about the PPM and how to file a complaint at:

The complaint submission form can be accessed in Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Bengali, Chinese, English, Tagalog, Hindi, Nepali, Russian, Turkish, or Urdu. The submission form can be found at:
