Project Description
The objective of the Additional Financing for the Emergency Water and Electricity Services Upgrading Project for Guinea-Bissau is to: (a) restore and increase the access of the population of the Recipient's capital city of Bissau to safe water and improve the quality of water services and (b) improve the reliability of electricity supply to the population of Bissau. The Additional Financing (AF) will help finance the costs associated with scaling up and expanding activities to enhance the impact of the parent project. The proposal also includes a restructuring of the parent project, which will involve, among others, an extension of the project closing date and a revision of the project development objective (PDO) and the results framework. The AF will enhance the impact of the parent project by (a) providing access to improved water services to approximately 57,000 additional people, increasing the project outcome target by 75 percent and (b) further improving the reliability of electricity services. The improvement of the management and operational performances of EAGB under the AF will be achieved through private sector participation (PSP) in the delivery of services in the form of a SC with a professional operator and effective and proactive monitoring of the quality of electricity and water services under a performance contract.
