Spain to Aid Ecuador to Increase Water Services to Rural Areas

Ecuador will increase the coverage of efficient and sustainable water and sanitation services in rural communities of up to 20,000 inhabitants with a combination of $20 million in grants from Spain and $30 million in loans.

Ecuador’s Rural Water and Sanitation Infrastructure Program will install, expand, and improve water systems and provide sanitation solutions in low-income rural areas where these services are either absent or deficient. It will also finance activities to strengthen the management capacity of communities, operators, and local governments to deliver services, and bolster the capacity of the central government agency and regulator responsible for these services.

This is the 11th drinking water project carried out by the Spanish in the region with an initiative started in 2008 by President Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.
