Cape Verde, an extremely water-scarce country, faces a number of challenges in the water and sanitation sector. The $41.1 million Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Project (WASH Project) is designed to establish a financially sound, transparent and accountable institutional basis for the delivery of water and sanitation services to Cape Verdean households and businesses.
The project’s approach to improving sector performance is based on a three-pronged strategy: reforming national policy and regulatory institutions, transforming inefficient utilities into independent corporate entities operating on a commercial basis, and improving the quality and reach of water and sanitation infrastructure.
The WASH Project is comprised of three activities:
National Institutional and Regulatory Reform Activity
Utility Reform Activity
Infrastructure Grant Facility
