Haiti has been provided with an IDA Grant by the World Bank Board of Directors. This grant, worth a total of $50 million, was awarded in March for the Sustainable Rural and Small Towns Water and Sanitation Project.
The proposed objectives of the Project are to: (i) increase access to improved water supply and sanitation in targeted rural areas and small towns in zones affected by cholera; (ii) strengthen the Recipient’s water and sanitation service delivery mechanism at the deconcentrated level; and (iii) improve the Recipient’s capacity to respond promptly and effectively to an Eligible Emergency.
This will be done through the following components:
- Institutional Strengthening, Capacity Building and Project
- Water Supply and Sanitation ($31.65m)
- Contingent Emergency Response ($1m)
