Project Description

According to the bank website, the project will improve access to safe water in Tete settlement in Port Moresby, an informal settlement of about 8,000 people in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. These settlements are now an established feature of the urban landscape in Port Moresby.

Outputs include: (i) new water supply infrastructure constructed, including a pipeline and a storage tank; (ii) Tete water supply scheme managed by the community via the newly formalized community Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) committee; and (iii) a management model developed for a community-managed water supply scheme in settlement areas.

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.
