water and sanitation project in Haiti

< Previous | Home | Next >

From the website of the Inter-American Development Bank:

"The Haitian government has set itself bold goals for water and sanitation, like expanding coverage of potable water to 70% of the population by 2010, up from about half the population at present.

The IDB, the leading source of financing for water projects in Haiti, has focused its activities in promoting institutional reform in the sector and expanding services in secondary cities and rural communities.

It is also funding studies on water services in the Port-au-Prince metropolitan region.

A $54 million loan is financing the improvement of potable water services in Jacmel, Les Cayes, Ouanaminthe, Port-de-Paix and Saint-Marc.

In Saint-Marc, $10 million in civil works have been completed and clean water is flowing to dozens of public water kiosks and to thousands of individual connections.

Currently the Haitian government is holding a tender to select a consulting firm to provide technical advice to the SNEP utility on managing of Saint-Marc's water system.

Work in the other four cities should be completed over the next two years."
