Titre : Supply of Drinking Water to the Region of Aftout Elcharghi

(Supplementary Loan)

Pays de réalisation : Mauritanie

Date d’approbation : 09/08/2020

Objectifs
The project aims at providing drinking water to residents of the region of Aftout Elcharghi located in the governorates of Alassaba, Gorgol and Brakna, by treating part of the water of Foum Gleita dam, and transferring it to the villages and communities in the project area. The project also aims at reducing the spread of diseases caused by consumption of contaminated water by the population, thereby contributing to the improvement of their living conditions, their health, and the environment
