ISSIP-2 extends improved sewerage and sanitation services to rural villages of four governorates of Sohag, Assiut, El Sharkeya and Maunofia with a total rural population of approximately 17,000,000 persons. With a budget of 310 Million US $, the project is jointly funded by the World Bank (200 Million US$) and the Egyptian government (110 Million US $). ECG was awarded the project area which will cover target 37 villages at El Sharkeya governorate divided into 6 clusters with an allocated budget of 75 Million US Dollars. The population served by ISSIP-2 Project at Sharkeya is 1, 785,222 capita. The project objectives are to:

  • Provide badly needed infrastructure sanitation improvements (wastewater collection and treatment) in priority rural areas in the four governorates of Sohag, Assiut, Sharkeya and Monufia.
  • Improve water quality and reduce organic load in the selected irrigation canals and drainage basins within the served areas.
  • Raise awareness on the improvement of hygiene and sanitation.
  • Strengthen capacity to design, implement, operate and maintain the project infrastructure.

The ISSIP2 will promote the use of low cost, simple technologies to address sanitation and sewerage problems of Egyptian rural communities. The project will be implemented through concerted efforts of Holding Company of Water & Wastewater (HCWW), HCWW subsidiary in ElSharqya and National Organization for Potable Water and Sanitary Drainage (NOPWASD)
