Helping Thousands of Kyrgyz Rural Households Get Access to Clean Water

The World Bank has committed US$ 59.5 million for the implementation of the Sustainable Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Development Project, which will reach 90 villages in the Kyrgyz Republic’s Osh, Chui and Issyk-Kul regions, and directly benefit some 207,000 people. The project is expected to have a positive impact on the quality of life of rural citizens, but especially women, children and the most vulnerable, and to bring about a major reduction in people effected by water-borne diseases in rural areas.
