The Trade & Competitiveness Global Practice, which is a joint practice between the World Bank and International Finance Corporation (IFC), is assisting the Nouadhibou Free Zone (Mauritania) to ramp up the competitiveness of their fisheries cluster and to reduce the barriers to foreign direct investment. The deficiency in waste water treatment appears to be one of the critical infrastructure gap to be filled to switch to a more sustainable fish processing implementation.
The overall objective of this assignment is to prepare a survey the Nouadhibou Free Zone (NFZ), the beneficiary for the construction and operation of a wastewater treatment plant to treat the waste water generated from the operations of the fisheries cluster, including re-use of the treated effluent for other purposes if viable. The final deliverable, the survey report, will be used for the benefit of tendering for selection of the main Contractor to build the plant.
