Kyzyl-Kiya Water Sub-Project - CDP

 | Published November 29, 2016  -  Deadline December 20, 2016

The EBRD loan is co-financed by a loan of EUR 1.0 million (USD 1.13 million) from the European Investment Bank and a capital expenditure grant of EUR 3.5 million (USD 3.97 million) from the European Union (EU)’s Investment Facility for Central Asia.

Water supply operations in the Kyrgyz Republic are characterised by severely deteriorated assets for water supply and wastewater collection; very limited wastewater treatment; high operations and maintenance costs due to the deteriorated state of the assets; unreliable water supply and low institutional capacity to manage operationally and financially sustainable water supply services.

The city of Kyzyl-Kiya (the “City”) is situated in the south of the Kyrgyz Republic and one of the big industrial centres in the region. Kyzyl-kiya Water Company (the “Company”), a municipal enterprise wholly owned by the City, provides water supply services to the whole city.

A detailed mechanism needs be developed and agreed between the City and the Company and reflected in the Public Service Contract (“PSC”) to be signed between the City and the Company. The counterparts of Part II are the Company and the City.

Part III: Stakeholder Participation Programme
The third objective is to implement the Stakeholders Participation Programme (“SPP”), aimed at enhancing public ownership by encouraging water conservation, increasing public participation in the provision of water services (service quality, rehabilitation activities, tariffs integrating poverty and social issues) and raising public awareness on issues related to the project implementation and water use through establishment of the Water Users Committees (“WUC”). Furthermore, the SPP will integrate poverty and social issues into the proposed tariff reforms and social support programme and thereby assist the Company to improve their corporate governance. The counterparts of Part III are the Company and the City.
