Uganda - Strategic Towns Water Supply and Sanitation Project (STWSSP)

16-Aug-2018

The objective of the Strategic Towns Water Supply and Sanitation Project (STWSSP) is to support the Government of Uganda’s efforts to achieve sustainable provision of safe water and hygienic sanitation for the urban population by the year 2030. This in turn will contribute to improved health and productivity of the population in the targeted towns across the country. The project is estimated to cost UA 48.89 million, of which UA 44 million will be funded by an African Development Fund (ADF) loan and UA 4.9 million counterpart contribution from the Government of Uganda. The project will be implemented over a 5 year period from September 2018 to June 2024. The project has set aside UA 1.27 million under which bankable climate change resilient investment projects will be prepared to leverage approximately USD 83 million financing from the Green Climate Fund identified under the Uganda Strategic Program for Climate Change Resilience. The Government has also endorsed USD 2.2 million from the Climate Fund as cofinancing for strengthening climate change adaptation of the towns.
