The World Bank [has] approved a US$64 million loan to increase the efficiency, coverage and sustainability of water and sanitation services in Paraguay. The project will directly benefit almost 17 percent of Paraguayans, especially the most vulnerable and underserved groups.
[…] The Water and Sanitation Sector Modernization Project seeks to:
- Improve sector governance;
- Improve water services and increase access to sanitation [for one million people] in Metropolitan Asunción; and
- Increase access to sustainable water and sanitation services [for nearly 24,500 people] in rural areas [and] to build and/or expand approximately 30 water systems to support more than 6,000 indigenous peoples in rural areas.
