Background

The programme will foster a sustainable increase in access to potable water and sanitation in Paraguay, with quality services, with a focus on scattered rural communities and indigenous populations, in order to lessen the existing shortfall, by i) building capabilities for efficiently managing water and sanitation services; ii) bolstering the ability of citizens to exercise their rights and actively participate in planning and overseeing the actions of the public sector; iii) developing models for financing water and sanitation infrastructure through local financial instruments that aim for sustainability of the systems; and iv) improving access to, and the quality of, water and sanitation services in rural areas and indigenous communities in the interior of the country.
