These projects will be carried out in two phases: Phase I – for development of technical designs and tender documentation and Phase II – for infrastructure physical implementation.
Dietrich Hahn, MLPS International Senior Advisor mentioned that, as a result of project’s implementation the concrete results for the population will be the most important thing. ‘This project targets two priority fields and namely: quality water supply and sanitation, as well as energy efficiency services’, specified Dietrich Hahn.
It is to be mentioned, that the total budget of Phase I is EUR 3.5 million provided by European Union and EUR 325.000 – by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. The implementation period is 18 months.
