Colombia - Water and Sanitation Sector Support Project (Inglês)

The Water and Sanitation Sector Support Project aims to improve the provision of water supply and sanitation services in Colombia, in a financially efficient and sustainable manner through the provision of capital investment subsidies for poverty-focused coverage expansion, and service quality improvement. The Project will (a) scale-up the involvement of the private sector in medium-sized cities, through the introduction of performance-based management arrangements with specialized operators; (b) support service-improvement related investment through targeted capital grants in small- and medium-size cities, and in some high poverty peri-urban areas of large cities, served by public utilities; and, (c) deliver appropriate water supply and sanitation investments to Colombia's underserved rural areas. Consistent with the scope and objectives, the Project will have two components: Component 1 - Municipal Water Supply and Sewerage Infrastructure, to finance investments in the rehabilitation and construction/expansion of primary and secondary water and sewerage networks; investments in water treatment plants, pumping stations and main collectors, wastewater treatment infrastructure including treatment plants and discharge infrastructure; and, construction and implementation supervision at the municipal level through independent supervision consultants. The Component will finance two types of subprojects: a) infrastructure investment subprojects, to be accompanied by technical assistance for utility reform; and, (b) modernization subprojects, which would involve financing of both investment, and the introduction of private sector management for local utilities. Component 2 - Program Management, Benchmarking, Monitoring and Evaluation, to finance consultant services and equipment to strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of environment, Housing and Regional Development (MAVDT) to implement the Project at the central level, and provide technical assistance to the participating municipal utilities. Activities to be financed under this Component include: supply and installation of information technology equipment to allow for an efficient monitoring of utility performance, and program implementation; technical assistance and training to the MAVDT, for Project implementation, monitoring and financial management; and, other operating expenses for the MAVDT, and in particular, The Directorate of Potable Water and Basic Sanitation (DAPSBA).
