Project Description
The development objectives of the Small Town Water Supply and Urban Septage Management Project for Benin are to: (i) increase access to water supply and sanitation in selected small towns and urban areas in the Recipient’s territory; (ii) strengthen service delivery capacity of water supply and sanitation sector institutions in selected small towns and urban areas in the Recipient’s territory; and (iii) in the event of an Eligible Crisis or Emergency, to provide immediate and effective response to said Eligible Crisis or Emergency. This project has four components. 1) The firs component, Scaling-up the Small Town Water Supply Subsidized Concession Model, aims to support the guiding principles of the rural and small town water supply national strategy, as well as, more broadly, the Government of Benin's (GoB) reform seeking to accelerate the achievement of universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water. It has the following subcomponents: (i) Institutional Strengthening of Stakeholders Involved in Water Supply Service Delivery in Small Towns; and (ii) Rehabilitation and Expansion of Water Supply Networks. 2)The second component, Improving Fecal Sludge Management, will support public and private actors to ensure clarity on the institutional arrangements for effective urban sanitation service delivery in the Grand Nokoué Region, and contribute to funding sanitation solutions and infrastructure in selected areas, to improve fecal sludge containment and reduce pollution from the lack of fecal sludge collection and treatment. It has the following subcomponents: (i) Institutional Strengthening of Stakeholders Involved in FSM in Urban and Peri-urban Areas; (ii) Household-level Sanitation in Urban and Peri-urban Areas; and (iii) Urban and Peri-urban Septage Collection and Treatment Infrastructure.
