    Promoter – Financial Intermediary




    The project will finance the construction of a new drinking water treatment plant of Karey Gorou with a production capacity of 100 000 m3/day and related infrastructure (reservoirs, pipelines, pumping stations, connections) to adapt the existing water distribution system.


    The project will increase the water production capacity for the city of Niamey, to cope with the water demand until 2030, by enabling the delivery of the new volumes to a beneficiary population of about 2 million and will support the expansion of the city through over 25 000 new household connections. As a result, it will also improve the living conditions of the local population and thus contribute to reduce migration as an adaptation strategy of the population caused by water scarcity in the Sahel region, bringing a positive impact on public health and social stability.
