The project concerns the construction of a wastewater treatment plant in Guangarcucho, city of Cuenca, Azuay province (Republic of Ecuador).
The operation will support sustainable growth, improve the wellbeing and health of the local population, and bring environmental benefits.
The project will have a very high positive environmental impact through the significant reduction of wastewater discharges into the rivers of the area. In addition, it is expected that the project will have a significant contribution to climate change mitigation, through the reduction of greenhouse gases emissions from waste water and sludge treatment.
The promoter of the project will be required that procurement of goods, works and services is carried out in accordance to EIB's Guide to Procurement.
This operation is covered by the ELM Guarantee.
