African Development Bank Drinking Water Project in Tunisia
The Government of Tunisia and the African Development Bank (AfDB) have launched a national programme on drinking water access in rural Tunisia. The financing agreement of the programme for 183 million Tunisian dinars (€95 million) was signed in Tunis in October 2011.
The programme aims to enhance strategic access to drinking water in rural areas, one of Tunisia’s priotities. The programme, which is set to conclude in 2016, is expected to provide access to water to over 350,000 people.
