Support for Water and Sanitation Sector Management in Papua New Guinea

Project Description
The government requested Asian Development Bank (ADB) technical assistance (TA) to improve water and sanitation sector management, and to strengthen the government’s capacity to implement the WASH Policy.5 The proposed TA also forms a precursor to the District Towns Water and Sanitation Project preparatory TA (programmed for 2017) and ensuing loan (programmed for 2018), as reflected in the PNG country operations business plan, 2017–2019. 6 ADB is also processing a grant in 2017, Water Supply Scheme to Tete Settlement, which directly targets inadequate water supply services to a settlement on the outskirts of the capital, Port Moresby. TA support to the WASH PMU from an experienced individual consultant will strengthen sector coordination and leadership and ultimately increase access to improved water and sanitation, particularly in urban settlements, through (i) conducting an assessment of barriers and enablers to the delivery of improved WASH in PNG; (ii) reviewing the institutional structures of the Department of National Planning and Monitoring (DNPM) and Water PNG, making recommendations for institutional strengthening and identifying their respective human resource requirements; (iii) assessing options for increasing WSS access in PNG settlements; and (iv) providing ongoing advice and assistance to the PMU to strengthen peri-urban WSS management and coordination. An experienced water and wastewater advisory firm will (i) assist the DNPM and Water PNG to prepare water safety plans, and (ii) prepare feasibility studies for water supply and sanitation schemes in selected district towns. IMPACT Increased access to improved water and sanitation services. Improved sector coordination and leadership. OUTCOME Improved access to WSS services in urban settlements.
