Benefits

The proposed project is part of the overall National Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Programme (NUWSSP). The project objective is to improve the access, quality and sustainability of water supply and sanitation services in the two Provinces served by the Luapula Water and Sewerage Company and the Chambishi Water and Sewerage Company (CWSC) as well as ensure effective management and operation of the water supply and sewerage facilities on a commercial basis. The companies operate in small towns with water service coverage of only 63% in the proposed project area.The main outcomes of the project include increased reliability and coverage of the water supply and sanitation services, and improved management of the Utility. Increase the percentage of residents benefiting from adequate water supply services from 63% to 90% by 2021, increase the percentage of residents benefiting from improved sanitation facilities from 32% to 60% by 2021, Improved customer service through increased reliability and 24 hours availability of water supply by 2021, incidence of water borne diseases halved by 2021, revenue collection improved from 91% 100%by 2021; Unaccounted-for-water reduced from 44% to 30% by 2018, increased metered connections from 41% to 100% by 2021

Rational

Zambia's recognition of the importance of the water and sanitation sector in its economic development and in the reduction of poverty is evidenced by the central role that water and sanitation is given in the Country's medium-term development plan, the Sixth National Development Plan (SNDP) (2010 - 2015) and the long-term plan, the National Vision 2030. Water supply and Sanitation is one of the seven (7) sectors targeted for "priority expenditure" in the SNDP, alongside agriculture, health, education, infrastructure (roads) and public order and safety.It also contributes to the achievement of MDG of halving the proportion of people without access to safe water and sanitation by 2015.The Project falls within the Bank Group Vision, Integrated Water Resources Management Policy and strategic plan for water and sanitation, the Millennium Development Goals, and the targets set at the World Summit on Sustainable Development.
