The proposed Project contributes indirectly to the twin objectives of eradicating extreme poverty and sharing prosperity by improving the quality of life of about 400,000 residents in northern Gaza through the provision of wastewater treatment services, including the protection of communities against the risk of floods from uncontrolled wastewater reservoirs, and by creating economic opportunities for productive use of treated effluent. Well-managed wastewater infrastructure in northern Gaza is at the core of a healthy life and to ensuring high quality environment services for present and future generations. The project will also protect lives, infrastructure, and economic activities from the risk of flooding from uncontrolled wastewater reservoirs in northern Gaza. At the same time, the project will provide opportunities for sustainable water reuse in agriculture and the industry, while recuperating the quality of groundwater resources.
The proposed project is aligned with the World Bank Group (WBG) Assistance Strategy (AS) for the WB&G FY18-21. The project builds on Pillars 1 and 3 of the Strategy by strengthening water service institutions with a focus on citizen engagement (including women and vulnerable groups) and government accountability, under Pillar 3, as well as to the updated 2019 MENA Regional Strategy by addressing the social contract between citizens and the government through the delivery of basic services.
