NDF grant for wastewater treatment plant in Senegal

The government of Senegal has received a grant from the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) to finance two components under the World Bank-funded Water and Sanitation Millennium Project.

The National Office for Sanitation of Senegal is now seeking expressions of interest for the provision of consultancy services for this component.

The project aims at increasing access to sustainable water and sanitation services. The NDF contribution of EUR 4 million aims to strengthen the climate change aspects of the project by increasing the use of renewable energy, decreasing the emissions of greenhouse gases, and supporting a more efficient use of water resources for enhanced food security and livelihood.

NDF will finance the development of methane gas electricity generation as well as the extension of a system supplying treated wastewater for irrigation. The total budget for the project is USD 55 million.
