Project Description

According to ADB website, ADB is helping Azerbaijan improve water and sanitation services in towns and semi-urban areas surrounding the capital Baku. The third project under the program will improve the water supply and sewerage network in Aghjabedi town, and in the peri-urban areas of Qaracuq, Qarahanbeyli, Bulgan, Haciniyyet, and Tumbul, located south and southwest of Nakhchivan city.

The main objectives of the subprojects are to (i) meet the demand for water by increasing the proposed volume at the consumer end to 147 liters per capita per day (lpcd) for domestic consumption and 29.4 lpcd for non-domestic consumption; (ii) increase the abstraction of water from the existing and new sources to meet water demand; (iii) improved water distribution network to provide between 90 to 100% of the households with safe and reliable water supply as compared to 32% in 2011; (iv) reduction of non-revenue water (NRW) to 10% of production through district/bulk metering; hydraulic zoning; leak detection and consumer metering.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
