Description of the Project

The Government of Egypt, with assistance from the World Bank, launched a large-scale rural sanitation program entitled the Second Integrated Sanitation & Sewerage Infrastructure Project (ISSIP2) in 2011 financed with USD 200 million from the World Bank and implemented by the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater (HCWW), to be completed in December 2017, to develop the rural sanitation sector in towns and villages in four Governorates in the Delta and Upper Egypt regions of Egypt: Sharkia, Menofeia, Assuit and Sohag.


The project will contribute to sustainable improvement in sanitation and environmental conditions for rural resident communities and the water quality in the rural areas of the selected four governorates through the provision of improved wastewater collection and treatment systems and reduction of pollution in the surrounding water canals and drains. ISSIP2 priority areas are estimated to include about 641,123 people in 33 villages in the for governorates that will benefit by use of the community participation strategy.
