This project was identified to operationalise in rural areas of Burkina Faso the objectives of the programme jointly supported by the African Development Bank (AfDB)/African Water Facility (AWF), the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) and the Government of Denmark (GoDk). This programme contributes to the operationalisation of the African Water Vision 2025 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) linked to water and sanitation. The project will be implemented in the Centre-West, Centre-South and Central Plateau Regions where, at end-2021, it was noted that, respectively, 50.0%, 6.3% and 21.3% of health centres were not supplied with drinking water. Nor was 75.1%, 43.0% and 36.5% of schools. As regards sanitation, shortcomings concerned the low achievement rates of objectives relating to Ending Open Defecation (EOD) and access to domestic sanitation, weak or non-existent management and optimal recycling of wastewater and faecal sludge as well as weak intervention capacities of sanitation chain actors. With a three (3) year implementation period, the project’s total estimated cost will be five million, seven hundred and seventy thousand, three hundred and twenty-nine (5,770,329) Euro. Of this amount AWF will contribute four million, nine hundred thousand (4,900,000) Euro, excluding taxes and customs duties, i.e., 85% of the project cost.
The project aims to contribute to the improvement of the living conditions and health of rural communities in ten (10) priority municipalities in eight provinces of the Centre-West, Centre-South and Central Plateau Regions, and to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by providing beneficiary communities with support to improve their conditions of access to sustainable water, hygiene and sanitation services by supporting central government, central and devolved structures as well as the municipalities concerned to prepare investment projects for drinking water supply, hygiene, sanitation and climate-resilient water resources management, while improving water and sanitation sub-sector management.
