Urban Areas Living Environment Improvement Project. Sidi Taibi and Ouled M’barek, in Kenitra (Morocco)

Maroc

Titre : Urban Areas Living Environment Improvement Project. Sidi Taibi and Ouled M’barek, in Kenitra (Morocco)

Pays : Maroc

Durée : 2007

Présentation
Based on the "cities without slums" program 2004 – 2010 ("VSB Programme") established in 2002 by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Planning, which has jurisdiction over housing without proper sanitation, this project entails the construction of basic infrastructure in the unsanitary urban housing areas, Sidi Taibi and Ouled M’barek, in Kenitra, a suburb of the capital city, Rabat. The project will contribute to the resolution of the environmental and sanitation problems caused by flooding of the streets and household wastewater, thereby improving the residential environment of the poorer stratum of the population in the target area. Importantly, remediation of water pollution is expected in Sidi Taibi, which is situated above the groundwater zone that supplies drinking water to the Rabat metropolitan area.
Approximately 55% of the population of Morocco, or 3 million households, live in urban areas, and the number of households grows larger with each passing year. This concentration of people in the cities has resulted in a housing shortage. At the same time, the number of residences without proper sanitation, sufficient electric power, water and sewage systems and other basic infrastructure is growing, which is degrading the residential environment. Chronic flooding and spillage of household wastewater into the streets is seriously damaging the living environment. Under the National Initiative for Human Development, addressing the issue of the urban poor is an important issue.
The proceeds of the loan will be used for the procurement of resources, machinery, and materials needed for the construction of water and sewage systems, electricity distribution networks, and the construction and widening of roads, as well as for regional housing support activities and consulting services.
