24-Apr-2009

The project was categorized as Category 2 on 11 November 2008 according to the ADB Environmental and Social Policies and Procedures. The categorization is justified on the basis of considerable positive impact envisaged by the project which components are: 1) rehabilitation and extension of water production and distribution networks, 2) Construction of sanitation facilities in public places such as public schools, hospitals, market places and car parks. Since Ibadan is a very large town (population 2.5 million), requiring extended sanitation facilities, an update study of the sanitation needs and approaches for the town’s public facilities and solid waste will be carried out, which will lead to a separate Sanitation Project; and 3) Reforms and Capacity Building and, 4) Project Management.
