    Description
    Objectives

    Investment programme to optimise available water resources to bridge the gap in water demand for specific areas in northern Malawi in the short-medium term.

    The objective of the project is to ensure a reliable water supply, primarily for the populations of Mzuzu and Ekwendeni areas in the northern region of Malawi. The project's main components consist of upgrading and extending the water distribution system, upgrading of water treatment works, reduction of leakages, improving network management and water supply to low income areas. Certain designs are also expected to be carried out for the medium-long term projects including in particular a significant new water supply dam on the Lambilambi river.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    Investment components are largely confined to replacement of existing pipes and extension of water-treatment facilities. Therefore the operation is unlikely to result in any significant negative social or environmental impacts. The possible exception is the proposed raising of the existing Lunyangwa Dam by approximately 1m which would require an environmental impact assessment to be carried out.

    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that implementation of the project will be done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement.

    Disclaimer

    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
