Overview of water and sanitation activities FY89 (English)

This overview of FY89 analyzes lending and sector operations, draws some conclusions, and finishes with recommendations for future activities within the sector. Lending in FY87 has concentrated to a greater extent than in previous years on the problem of rapidly increasing demand for water, with a particular focus on providing services to the poor in burgeoning urban areas. The growth in sewerage and sanitation lending which had been foreseen for FY89 did not occur however, prompting concern for health and environmental implications. In the context of the main findings of this annual review of project performance, the issues of insufficient project preparation, land acquisition, and non-revenue producing water reduction are still pervasive in the FY89 lending program projects. Other important aspects that require more attention in the upcoming sector and project preparation work are related to acceptable water quality standards, use of intermediate alternative technologies to reduce capital and operating costs, water demand analysis based on dependable data, and the environmental impact of providing additional amounts of water for which no sanitary sewerage is foreseen in the near future.
