Fez and Meknes Regions Water Supply Project (Morocco)


Titre : Fez and Meknes Regions Water Supply Project (Morocco)

Pays : Maroc

Durée : 2011 – 2015

By providing tap water facilities that will provide water to the rural cities of Fez and Meknes along with the surrounding villages of North Central Morocco, the supply capacity of drinking water in the area will increase, improving the living environment for local residents and stimulating economic activity in those regions.
The funds for this project will be allocated to the procurement of the necessary materials and equipment, civil works, and facility construction, as well as to consulting services for tender assistance and construction monitoring.

The Government of Morocco is working with the private sector to reduce poverty and attenuate regional disparities based on the National Human Development Initiative formulated by King Mohammed VI in May 2005. One area with a particularly high priority is the water supply sector. While steady growth has been seen in the access rate, a number of issues must be addressed to improve the water infrastructure. These include improving the overall national water access rate, transitioning from common water taps to water supplied to individual homes in rural areas, and meeting the demand for water with consideration to the rising population, urbanization and higher living standards in Morocco. In response, the Fez and Meknes Regions Water Supply Project will provide a stable supply of potable water in regional cities where demand is growing because of rising population, expansion in the number of regions where water is supplied and an increased number of homes with individual water access. This will improve the living environment in those regions, and by extension also reduce poverty. In the Yokohama Action Plan issued at TICAD IV, the Japanese Government announced that water supply facilities would be provided to supply safe drinking water to 6.5 million people. This project will be implemented as a part of the TICAD support policy, and will benefit 2.3 million Moroccans
