Project Description
The development objective of the Urban Water and Sanitation Project for Senegal is to to improve access to water and sanitation services in selected urban areas in a financially sustainable manner. The proposed additional financing (AF) aims to scale up urban water supply activities of the parent project that are designed to help eliminate water shortages in the Dakar-Thiès-Petite Côte (DTPC) area and improve the quality and reliability of water services,in line with the original PDO. Accordingly, it is proposed to (a) revise the associated Results Framework (revise targets of some outcome and intermediary indicators); (b) revise the components and costs to reflect the scale up of existing activities; and (c) adjust the related areas in procurement, disbursement and implementation schedule. Implementation arrangements will mostly be maintained, as well as the structure of the parent project. It is also proposed to extend the closing date of the parent project by 18 months (from June 30, 2020, to December 31, 2021) to ensure sufficient time to implement the additional activities. These changes are reflected in the amendment to the Financing Agreement of the parent project.
