The immediate objectives of the project are as follows:

  • 1. To increase capacity of municipalities in ACP countries to identify and formulate projects to collect and either treat or re-use municipal wastewater that are: a.environmentally friendly, b.technologically feasible, and c.financially sustainable.
  • 2.To develop institutional capacity - at the finance committee level - for effective multi-year financial planning; and to strengthen domestic and external resource mobilization, including the “user pays” and “polluter pays” principle, and involvement of the private sector
  • 3.To promote the systematic involvement of stakeholders, such as fisheries, tourism, public health, environmental NGOs and communities, in all stages of the planning process leading to municipal wastewater infrastructure investments; and to improve the knowledge base and strengthen information exchange between practitioners (North-South knowledge transfer and South-South knowledge sharing) and cooperation between project managers and finance planners.
