The project will address factors which result in the high incidence of waterborne disease on Ebeye, an island within Kwajalein Atoll.
The project is consistent with RMI's strategic development strategy, Vision 2018, for improved hygiene and sanitation and reliable and affordable water and sanitation infrastructure. The project is included in RMI Country Operations Business Plan 2013 2015 which includes a strategic focus of infrastructure development. The project is aligned with: (i) ADB's Strategy 2020 to contribute to improved public health through water and sanitation investments; (ii) ADB's Approach to Assisting the Pacific (2010 2014) to improve the supply and delivery of water and sanitation services; and (iii) ADB's Water Policy and Water Operational Plan 2011 2020 to increase efficiency and productivity in the delivery of water services and increase investments in sanitation and wastewater management.
The project impact will be reduced incidence of waterborne disease on Ebeye and is aligned empowering people and communities to reduce the incidence of access related poverty through improvements in all areas including social, economic, environment, governance and infrastructure as articulated in RMI's National Strategic Plan 2015- 2017)

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
