Guinea - Urban Water Project (anglais)

The development objective of the Urban Water Project for Guinea are to increase access to improved water services in the Greater Conakry area and improve the operational efficiency of the urban water utility. The project components were selected on the basis of (a) the Guinea urban water supply diagnostic study and reinforcement plan, 2013 (ARTELIA) and (b) the urban water supply master plan for Conakry (1996) with further refinements during preparation (including the urban water supply for Conakry options, World Bank 2016) and lessons learned from the recent World Bank engagement in the water and sanitation sectors in Conakry. The proposed project will consist of four components. The First component, Urban Water will invest approximately US$26.2 million to increase water production capacity and rehabilitate obsolete parts of the distribution network including targeted extension to improve water service delivery in Conakry in general and the peri-urban poor in particular. The Second component, urban sanitation aims to support the Government with a citywide baseline survey on the current condition of urban sanitation in Greater Conakry, together with the development of a sanitation strategy and master plan for its improvement that would guide interventions in the sector (that is, on-site sanitation, fecal sludge management, and sewerage system). The Third component, institutional strengthening and project management aims to support the water sector institutions and the urban water sector reform and to enable the Project Implementation Unit (PIU) to exercise its responsibilities through the following activities: (i) Water resources management, (ii) Urban water sector reform, and (iii) Project Implementation Unit (PIU). The Fourth component, contingent emergency response is to improve the Government’s response capacity in the event of an emergency, following the procedures governed by OP/BP 10.00 paragraph 13 (Rapid Response to Crisis and Emergencies).
