A water fund to support new investment in water supply
Water Trust Fund (WTF) is one of the key components of Tajikistan Water Supply and Sanitation Project, which will serve as a tool for funding water supply and sanitation projects at a district level.
As envisioned, introduction of WTF in pilot districts - Rudaki and Muminabad will result in attracting significant funding resources to build and rehabilitate water supply and sanitation infrastructure in the districts while improving access to potable water for local population. The Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Tajikistan accepted the initiative of TajWSS project to co-finance the construction of water supply projects in the selected districts from the state and local budgets.
Successful implementation of WTF activities will also provide opportunities for Rudaki and Muminabad districts to attract new donor funding in the future.
