Liberia - Rural Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (RWASH) Program Development - Project Study


The rationale for the project can be put in the broader context of the Bank’s support for Liberia’s emergence from a recent past of conflict to a path of stability, growth and poverty reduction, accompanied by improved infrastructure rehabilitation and development. Current Development Partners’ support to the Liberian Water Sector is project based, and largely fragmented. Coupled with weak government capacity, this has tended to reduce the efficiencies that would be gained from a programmatic approach, in addition to increased transaction costs, and inability by government to effectively lead and coordinate the sector. Thus the need to harmonise on the part of the donors and to align to government efforts calls for development of programmatic framework for planning, financing and implementation. This Bank support will assist the Government to elaborate such a comprehensive framework, which will also be integrated.
