Some project examples are: (i) rehabilitation and expansion of water supply systems; (ii) new and upgraded collection and wastewater treatment; (iii) rehabilitation and expansion of drainage and storm-water systems; (iv) expanded and improved waste collection and recycling and (v) coastal and reef protection projects, among others.

    Environmental aspects

    The Promoters will be required to implement and operate the projects in conformity with national laws, as well as the EIB's Environmental and Social Standards. The programme loan intends to bring environmental benefits such as: (i) pollution abatement in water bodies and marine environment through improved wastewater treatment, storm-water and solid waste management; (ii) improved water management through the rehabilitation of water supply systems thus reducing non-revenue water; (iii) protection of coasts from flooding and erosion; (iv) climate change mitigation through the reduction in greenhouse gases emissions due to improved wastewater treatment, increased energy efficiency in water supply systems and improved solid waste management; and (v) climate change adaptation through improved water management, flood protection and coastal resilience. It is expected that the programme loan will improve access to safe drinking water and sanitation, as well as result in more resilient and reliable water services.


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