PALESTINIAN NATIONAL AUTHORITY
The operation is a fully grant funded project concerning the construction of a sea water reverse osmosis desalination plant with annual capacity of 55MCM in Gaza. It also includes the related renewable energy component, as well as a five-year subsidy of operating costs and technical assistance for project management and works supervision.
The project, responding to pressing humanitarian needs, is addressing the scarcity and safety of drinking water in Gaza, which affects 2 million people. It will help regenerate the coastal aquifer, improve living conditions, boost the economy by adding construction jobs and also provide water for industry.
The Gaza Central Desalination Plant and Associated Works Programme, developed by the Palestinian Water Authority, comprises two main components: 1. A desalination plant equipped with an independent power generation facility, to be implemented under EIB's supervision. 2. An associated works component that will add a south-north carrier system, which runs 160 kilometers, to be implemented under the World Bank's supervision.

A full Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) and a Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) for the desalination plant have been prepared. The RAP has already been implemented. A separate ESIA for the construction of a photovoltaic power plant to supply energy to the desalination plant is under way.
Contracts relating to the desalination plant and power generation facility will be procured in compliance with the EIB Guide to Procurement.
