Water supply department riding wave of international cooperation

The Department of Water Supply under the Ministry of Public Works and Transport is targeting an expansion of projects across the country this year after racking up achievements in the sector during 2019.

To achieve its goal to develop provincial water supply and sanitation systems, the department will continue to partner with international organisations. This includes utilising a loan of about US$44 million from the Economic Cooperation Fund (Republic of Korea) and US$28.3 million in finance from the Asian Development Bank.

Additional assistance will come via grant aid from the European Commission’s Asia Investment Facility (AIF) with US$3 million, 150,000 euro from EMO, and US$5 million from UN-Habitat.
