Project Description
The objective of the Additional Financing for the Urban Water and Sanitation Project for Niger is to increase access to sustainable water supply services and to improved sanitation services in some urban areas in the recipient’s territory. The Additional Financing (AF) will help finance the costs associated with scaling up the impacts of the parent project by increasing access to sustainable water and improved sanitation in six initially targeted cities and one additional city. Additional activities are in line with the parent project development objective (PDO). The project paper also includes a restructuring that will involve: (a) extending the project closing date from December 31, 2016, to June 30, 2020; (b) triggering two new safeguards policies, namely OP4.11, physical cultural resources and OP7.50, projects on international waterways; (c) revising the results framework; and (d) adjusting the disbursement arrangements.
