The project aims at improving the health status of the inhabitants of some areas in Sana’a City through the construction of sanitary networks. This will eliminate the environmental problems associated with the flow of raw wastewater to residential and commercial areas and to roads. In addition, the project will reduce the spread of water-related diseases and improve the appearance of the capital city.


The project, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2016, consists of the following main components:

  1. Construction of Sanitary Networks: This includes the supply and installation of major and minor pipelines, and the ancillary equipment needed to collect and transport the raw wastewater from the areas of Asser, Alsuneneh, Omer Ben Abdelaziz, Aljarda’, Kaa’Aljarda’, Rawda and the area east of the airport, in addition to the construction of networks at other sites in Sana’a requiring quick remedial action.
  2. Technical Services: This includes the supervision of construction of the networks and the hiring of experts to support the project management unit within the SWSLC.


The Arab Fund's loan covers about 81% of the total project cost. The Yemeni Government will cover the remaining cost of the project and any additional cost that may arise.
