Project Description

According to the bank, the new project is conceived as a demand based project and will be structured as an Investment Project Financing (IPF) Project, compromising an IDA Credit of US$10 million to be implemented over six years. Selection of the IPF structure was based on the IPF's flexibility and suitability to incorporate financing to support an integrated and resilient water approach in eligible municipalities, including a number of specific investments in water conservation and water governance, operation of WSS systems, TA and capacity enhancement measures for urban and rural providers and the inclusion of vulnerable users and communities. The potential usage of an IDA Guarantee is based on the need to create the correct incentives for private financing in the Project.
