    The European Commission prepared a new Regulation, namely Council Regulation establishing an Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA) which applies for 1 January 2007. The above mentioned Regulation is designed to provide financial assistance for the 2007-2013 period and aims at streamlining the pre-accession assistance through the creation of a single framework that will ensure maximum coordination of all EU pre-accession assistance provided so far under PHARE, ISPA, SAPARD, CARDS.

    In order to allow for the inclusion of environmental infrastructure projects under 2007-2009 period and future programmes, it is necessary to prepare feasibility studies and EIAs on the basis of already established prioritized project pipeline. Each infrastructure project submitted for EU funding needs to be in compliance with the EU acquis.
    This project involves preparation and design work for major infrastructure and water distribution network projects that will bring significant health, environmental and social benefits to communities across Turkey.

    With the view to support the actual preparation of specific environmental infrastructures, this project covers conducting feasibility studies, cost/benefit analysis and EIAs, master plans, design of investment projects, technical drawings, and works/supply/service tender dossiers, including technical specifications, BoQs, ToR as well as full procurement documentation, in accordance with PRAG/FIDIC applications, the EU Acquis and Strategic Coherence Framework.

    • An Inception Report
    • Master Plans for the selected 8 project areas that identify the longer term service improvement and investment needs in the water sector
    • A detailed Feasibility Study for each of the selected 8 drinking water supply investment projects considering environmental, legal, technical, financial and socio-economic aspects
