IFC will provide transaction advisory support to the National Mission for Clean Ganga, Ministry of Water Resources, River Development, and Ganga Rejuvenation (MOWR), and the municipal water supply & sewerage services corporations (Jal Nigams) in Haridwar, Varanasi and Mathura . This support will include helping the Government of India select private partners to finance, construct, operate, and maintain sewerage treatment plants for municipal waste-water in the three cities. The partners will be selected through a transparent and competitive bid process.
The project is expected to improve the management and treatment of waste-water in three cities along the Ganga basin. This will contribute to the Government of India’s Namami Gange Program by helping reduce the flow of pollution into the Ganga River, and benefit people living near the river front in these cities.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
