Mauritania - Additional Financing for the Urban Development Project (English)

The objective of the Additional Financing for the Urban Development Project is to support Mauritania's central and local governments to: (i) improve access to basic services and infrastructure in targeted urban areas; and (ii) increase access to micro-finance and income-generating activities for slum population. The additional financing will finance costs associated with scaling up the development effectiveness and impact of component 1 (d) (provision of basic urban infrastructure in the main cities) of the project, described in the project appraisal document presented to the Board on October 25, 2001. The scaling up is comprised of construction of: (a) paved road (25.7 km), (b) unpaved roads (26 km), (c) water supply (8.3 km of network), and (d) transmission and distribution lines (18.5 km of network and 210 street lamps).
