Présentation
The development objectives of the Additional Financing (AF) for Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Project (UWSSP) for Ethiopia is to increase access to sustainable water supply and sanitation services in Addis Ababa and four secondary cities. This project paper seeks the approval of the Executive Directors to provide an AF in the form of a credit in an amount of SDR 96.9 million (US$150 million equivalent) from the International Development Association to the project. The additional support is requested to fill the financing gap that was created due to unanticipated cost overrun to complete the original project activities as well as to expand the activities and scale up the project’s impact and development effectiveness. The original project will also be restructured to accommodate the change in design and the request for extension of project closing date. The UWSSP provides assistance to Addis Ababa city and four secondary cities (Gondar, Hawassa, Jimma, and Mekelle) to : (i) produce and distribute more water and improve sanitation services ; (ii) improve the utilities operational efficiency by reducing non revenue water, and improve financial management, billing and collection, and customer management ; and (iii) improve governance by the water boards and introduce performance incentives for operators. The additional financing will be used to scale up the investment in Addis Ababa by upgrading the city’s wastewater treatment system to respond to the increasing demand arising from the city’s urban renewal project which is converting most of the housing units in the developed areas to condominiums and high rise building complexes ; expand project activities to a new federal city Dire Dawa, which is the second most populous city in the country, but which has a very low rate of access to water supply ; and finance the funding gap incurred due to price escalation and change in design to accommodate the ground reality encountered in the course of implementation in the four secondary cities
