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

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AIIB
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: https://www.aiib.org/en/about-aiib/who-we-are/project-affected-peoples-mechanism/how-we-assist-you/index.html.
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: https://www.aiib.org/en/about-aiib/who-we-are/project-affected-peoples-mechanism/submission/index.html.
