The Millennium Hydraulic Programme (PHAM) aims to contribute to the reduction of poverty and improve health services to the populations within the programme’s reach (west and centre west of the country) by providing an access to a better basic service in terms of water and sanitation.
Under its hydraulic component the PHAM aims to improve population’s access to drinking water in the intervention zone and assure the efficiency of maintenance and management of the infrastructure. There are two parts to this component.
The building work part is implemented through a contribution convention between the Kreditanstalt für Wiederausbau (KfW) and the EU. It aims the construction and rehabilitation of about 100 Enhanced Village Hydraulic systems (HVA) which will contribute to increase the drinking water service rate and the quality of services in the program’s zone.
The Institutional support is implemented via partially decentralised management by the Cooperation Coordination Unit Côte d’Ivoire-European Union (CCC CI/UE) which requested a technical assistance notably to:
Contribute, in concert with concerned actors, to the conception and writing of the sectorial policy for drinking water and assist Ivorian authorities in its effective implementation;
Assist Ivorian authorities in the restructuration and decentralization process, transferring drinking water infrastructure in rural area project management from the state to decentralized collectivities
Contribute to the perpetuity of the rural hydraulic infrastructures, through the professionalization of the management and the maintenance of the rural water points on a national level.
Sectorial analysis and description of the current situation and formulation of improvement propositions for the situation and/or legal texts and regulations;
Development and approval of the different texts, schemes and strategies. This step is crucial for success and aims to be as participative as possible;
Support in the implementation of the different texts, schemes and strategies in three steps:
Development of a communication plan and a capacity building plan;
Implementation in one or several pilot regions;
Implementation in the whole Ivorian territory. The condition to access to this step it to validate the texts in the Council of Ministers
