According to bank documents, the project aims to reduce wastewater pollution and strengthen the capacity of the participating institutions to manage wastewater treatment systems in La Paz and Tarija. It will increase wastewater treatment and reuse coverage rates so as to ultimately reduce water pollution, improve the health of populations in beneficiary areas, and contribute to building climate resilience in agricultural areas surrounding urban cities. An initial Climate Risk screening showed moderate risks for wastewater in the country; these risks are mainly linked to increased incidence of drought which will affect both the quality and quantity of wastewater to be treated.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF WORLD BANK
The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
