According to the bank document, "the Project Development Objective (PDO) is to improve security and integrated management of Phu Quoc Island’s water resources. This will be achieved through:
(i) increasing water storage capacity and supply coverage;
(ii) improving wastewater management; and
(iii) reducing flood risks.
It is envisaged that the project will support resilient infrastructure for water supply, drainage, flood retention, wastewater and solid/plastic waste collection. The project will support resilient infrastructure for water supply, drainage, flood retention, wastewater and solid waste management, in targeted areas - critical for long-term sustainable development of the Island. Such interventions collectively will support the achievement of the PDOs, to be measured through the following Key Results indicators.
- Increase in water storage capacity (months of storage for projected demand)
- People provided with access to “improved water sources” (number, including female)
- People provided with access to “improved sanitation services” (number, including female)
- Reduced area prone to floods in the area covered by the project interventions (hectares)
- Volume (mass) BOD pollution load removed by the treatment plant supported under the project (tons/year)
- Solid and plastic waste removed from the new and rehabilitated drainage system supported under the project (tons/year)".
