Project description

The reform in the management of motorised water pumps is one of the most innovative programs in Senegal as far as water supply is concerned. The project covers 300 water pump stations and consists of many components:
• the state's disengagement from exploitation and maintenance activities to the benefit of the private sector,
• the involvement of the local communities through an effort of decentralization,
• the formation of water users associations,
• the appointment of either managers or representative administrators for water services,
• the development of financial products that will allow users to buy and renew the equipments at their own charge,
• concrete undertakings, involving the rehabilitation of existing water pump stations, and the densifications and extension of water systems.
