Ethiopia - Water Supply and Sanitation Project : additional financing (English)

The objective of the Additional Financing for the Water Supply and Sanitation Project for Ethiopia is to increase access to sustainable water supply and sanitation services for rural and urban users through improved capacity of stakeholders in the sector. The additional financing will cover the costs associated with the financing gap in the urban water supply and sanitation component of the project. This is due to: (i) higher than expected per capita costs for piped systems (from $47 per capita at appraisal to US $80 per capita currently), (ii) larger than expected populations in participating towns, (iii) the shifting of US$ 13 million of project funds to the global food crisis project, and (iv) the termination of the government counterpart contribution (US$ 15.98 million) under the project. With increased costs, reduced project funds and without the additional financing, the remaining resources available in the project account for urban water supply and sanitation component can only partially fund construction of water supply facilities in 28 towns (17 small, 5 medium, and 6 large) of the 50 towns originally targeted by the project, with the financial shortfall of US$ 80 million. Out of the US$ 80 million additional financing requested US$22 million will be used to cover the financial gap in the 28 ongoing towns and US$ 58 million will be used to fully finance the remaining 22 towns to meet the original project objective.
