SWSSIP aims to improve the quality and delivery of urban water supply services in Juba City, in Jubek State, within the Equatoria region and rural water supply and sanitation services to rural communities in Jubek State. It is a capacity development project to build resilience in a fragile environment. The project's main outcomes are improved equitable access to sustainable water supply in the project area, improved water system functionality, and improved rural hygiene and sanitation. With regard to the sanitation interventions, schools and communities in 8 targeted rural areas of Jubek state will benefit from the 40 public/institutional latrines blocks and hygiene education to be constructed, thus eliminating health hazards. The project has three components, namely: (i) water and sanitation infrastructure, (ii) institutional capacity building and (iii) project management.
The objective of the project is to improve the quality of life and productivity in Juba City and the surrounding rural communities of Jubek State through safe, adequate and affordable water supply and sanitation services.
