The Municipality of Aracaju (PMA) is located on the east side of the state of Sergipe. Although it is the least populated capital in the northeast region of Brazil, it had a population increase of 45% in the past 20 years, entailing challenges related to inadequate urban infrastructure. In addition, the city is also susceptible to floods affecting areas with low-lying topography, including the Expansion Zone, one of the city's areas affected by the scarcity of basic sanitation, difficulties with stormwater drainage and lack wastewater sewer system.

The Project comprises the following key components:i) Integrated Sanitation - Implementation of stormwater and wastewater sewer systems at 19 different locations throughout the city with a total length of 60 km.ii) Flood Management - Restoration of water channel network through dredging and resizing at three locations (Poxim River, Medici and Anisio Azevedo Channels), for a total length of 11 km. It also includes the construction of a 19 km open water channel network in the Expansion Zone.iii) Urban Mobility - Replacement of top pavement layer through mill and overlay of five avenues with significant traffic volumes (Pres.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF NEW DEVELOPMENT BANK
The New Development Bank (NDB) does not currently have an independent accountability mechanism to accept complaints related to NDB-financed projects. The Bank does have a whistleblower mechanism that receives complaints about misconduct related to corruption, fraudulent practices and instances of money laundering in projects financed by the NDB and/or against the NDB staff members. To learn more about the whistleblower mechanism and how to file a complaint, access this webpage at: https://www.ndb.int/about-us/whistleblowing/.
