Backstopping of the water programme of the Swiss government in Tunisia, Kasserine governorate, and provision of project management support for the rehabilitation of 15 drinking water supply systems (ongoing since 2014).
The project team is assisting the regional authorities with works planning, sites selection, local communities mobilization, contracting out detailed designs and infrastructure rehabilitation works, supervising local contractors, but also documenting good practices and sharing knowledge with the partners.
Kasserine governorate is one of the least privileged regions of Tunisia. Water resources are scarce, climate is arid and rural communities are lacking proper drinking water supply systems. The project aims at fulfilling the needs of approximately 25’000 people through the provision of safe drinking water. Communities are also trained at operating and maintaining the infrastructures.
