Decentralizing hydraulic systems and ensuring effective management of the water infrastructure
The Millennium Hydraulic Program (PHAM) has two goals—reduce poverty and improve health services. The scope? Provide access to better water and sanitation. That means more drinking water in the intervention zone and ensured efficiency for infrastructure maintenance and management.
The building work has been implemented through a contribution convention between the Kreditanstalt für Wiederausbau (KfW) and the European Union (EU). Together, they aim to construct and rehabilitate about 100 enhanced village hydraulic systems (HVA) which will increase the drinking water service rate and the quality of services in the program’s zone.
The institutional support was implemented through partially decentralized management by the Cooperation Coordination Unit Côte d’Ivoire-European Union (CCC CI/UE). Our job was technical assistance in support of a sectorial policy for drinking water—plus we assisted in implementation. We helped Ivorian authorities in the restructuring and decentralization process, transferring drinking water infrastructure management in rural areas from the state to local authorities.
We implemented the program in several pilot regions so that, in the future, Ivorian authorities can scale it up to the whole Ivorian territory, delivering better water quality and improving quality of life.
