The European Union, AFD and the Djiboutian Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry have just signed several agreements worth a total amount of €40 million, intended to improve access to water and sanitation in Djibouti.

The new projects supported by the EU and AFD aim to support the Djibouti National Water and Sanitation Office (Onead) in the face of water treatment issues.

Improving access to sanitation services 

  • The third phase of the Program for the extension and rehabilitation of the Djibouti Sanitation Network (Perrad III), financed in the order of €15 million, will make it possible to increase the sanitation network in five districts of the city of Djibouti, benefiting about 30,000 people.
  • The second project, worth €10 million, aims to transport effluent from several districts of Balbala Sud to the new Balbala wastewater treatment plant, funded by the EU, for the benefit of more than 20,000 people. 

Improving the performance of Onead for a quality water service

The Prospero project, financed by a €10 million grant from AFD and a delegation of €5 million from EU funds, aims to improve the performance and operating conditions of the Onead water service .
