Kyzyl-Kiya Water Sub-Project - CDP

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

Project Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD" or the “Bank”) has extended  a sovereign loan of up to USD 1.7 million to the Kyrgyz Republic to be on-lent to Kyzyl-Kiya City for the benefit of Kyzyl-Kiya Water Company  to finance rehabilitation of the water supply improvements in the City (the “Project”). 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.

Assignment Description:  The Client now intends to retain a consulting company (the “Consultant”) to provide institution building support to the Company through corporate development, social support, and stakeholder participation programmes (the “Assignment”).

The Assignment will therefore consist of three main Parts:
Part I: Corporate Development Programme for the Company including the Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme (FOPIP)
The Consultant will assist the Company in improving its commercial standing, service and environmental/social performance by supporting identification and implementation where necessary establishment of the corporate, financial, operational and environmental/social management in order to meet the covenants included in the EBRD financing documents. The Consultant will also assist the Company in developing a medium-term focused corporate development plan and to improve the corporate planning capacity to assist ongoing transition towards becoming a self-sustaining entity with commercially sustainable operations, as well as implementing the Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) developed for the Company.

Part II: Social Support Programme
The second objective is to develop a mechanism to provide support for the low income customers so as to enable them to afford a basic service. The Kyrgyz Republic has a welfare system with subsidies to vulnerable groups, including subsidised utility services, which will bridge the affordability gap. The City has not provided direct subsidies to the low income families; instead it has provided subsidies to the Company to keep the tariff level low. 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.
