Ensuring access to safe drinking water is one of the most important problems in Kazakhstan, especially in rural regions. Water supply systems of villages in Kazakhstan inherited from Soviet Period are in physical disrepair and lack sound management and economic footing. Most of the water collection, treatment and distribution infrastructure is deteriorating and falling into disuse. Many pipes no longer complied with the sanitary and technical standards, due to pollution of water resources and the unsatisfactory technical conditions of water supply systems. Unhealthy conditions of water supply system and poor quality of drinking water cause water born- diseases and also have a negative impact on the social and economic development in rural areas.

According to the UNDP survey conducted in 2005-2006; over 30% of population does not have access to safe drinking water in the country (60% in rural regions). A low access to water in Kazakhstan, especially in certain regions is a result of poor technical conditions of water supply facilities in which repairs were conducted only within a limited scope due to lack of funding for several years.

The objective of the project is to rehabilitate rural water supply systems in Kazakhstan, which in addition to engineering works, will include the establishment of an organization/ service to maintain the rehabilitated facilities; training programs for relevant O&M staff and other targeted groups such as students and local communities.

Project Outputs
  • Technical Improvements of the water supply
  • Training for local communities and a cooperative of water users in respect to water supply facilities and tariff systems.
