Standard EBRD Procurement Procedure: http://www.ebrd.com/news/publications/policies/procurement-policies-and-rules.html
1. Increasing wastewater treatment capacity: The Project will provide access to improved sanitation services to over 940,000 people in six rural districts in Fayoum, thereby raising sanitation coverage to 86 per cent of the rural population (from a current level of 32.6 per cent).
2. Contributing to the depollution of Lake Qarun: Lake Qarun is the third largest lake in Egypt and an important natural freshwater resource for economic activities in Fayoum. The Project will substantially contribute to reduced pollution of Lake Qarun. This will positively affect community health and key related economic opportunities in Fayoum, including fishing, fish-farming and tourism related activities.
3. Improve operational systems and practices at local level: The Project will enhance the overall efficiency of the operations and improve the capacity and responsibility of the Fayoum Company for Water and Wastewater ("FWWC") while promoting the decentralisation of wastewater management.
- Contribution to green economy by providing access to improved sanitation services to the local population through enhanced wastewater collection and treatment capacities (the Project will effectively increase the Company's actual treatment capacity by approximately 290,000 m3/day), the Project will considerably reduce the volumes of raw wastewater, and its associated pollutant loads, that will be discharged into Lake Qarun. The Project will also increase the sustainable use of water resources by unlocking the potential for water reuse in agriculture.
- Contribution to economic inclusion through the improvement of health outcomes and improved economic opportunities for the local population in the Fayoum Governorate which is currently affected by a lack of adequate wastewater management systems and high pollution of water in agricultural drains and in Lake Qarun.
