Russia is endowed with one fifth of the world’s fresh water resources, however faces challenges with discharge of untreated waste water into its water bodies. The majority of the water supply and sanitation systems in the Russian Federation were constructed during 1970s to 1980s and due to physical and technological wear, require replacement and/or modernization. The current state of water supply and sanitation infrastructure has an adverse impact on the environmental situation in the country. With the target to enhance the quality of water supply, the Government of the Russian Federation has adopted the National Project “Ecology” which is aimed at pollution abatement in Russia.
The Water Management and Sanitation Program in Russia is aimed at addressing the water quality challenges in Russia through construction of new and/or modernization of existing water supply and sanitation systems.
The proposed NDB loan through the modality of a two-step loan will be used by Eurasian Development Bank for on-lending to its identified sub-projects including water supply systems and waste-water treatment facilities.
