West Bank and Gaza - Water Sector Capacity Building Project : additional financing (Arabic)

The objective of the Additional Financing to the Water Sector Capacity Building Project is to strengthen the capacity of the Palestinian Water Authority to more effectively plan, monitor, and regulate water sector development in the West Bank and Gaza. The AF will help finance the cost associated with completing and scaling-up project activities in order to: (i) achieve the original project target outcome to operationalize a functional Water Sector Regulatory Council (WSRC) by building its institution; and to (ii) support the Palestinian Water Authority (PWA) to further implement the water sector reform plan and improve its capacity. The Palestinian Authority, represented by the Ministry of Finance (MOF) and in consultation with the PWA and the WSRC, requests the additional financing for institutional development activities, including goods, consulting services, non-consulting services, training, operating costs and recurrent costs. The main outcomes of the AF would be: (i) institutional building of the a functional WSRC to monitor and regulate the service provision of the water sector in West Bank and Gaza; and (ii) enhance the capacity of the PWA in planning and policy formulation, and in implementing the water sector reform process. The direct beneficiaries from the proposed AF will be: (i) the population of West Bank and Gaza (around 4.5 million people) who will benefit from better management of water resources and better regulation of services; and (ii) the PWA and the WSRC that will be able to manage and regulate the sector more efficiently.
