Strategic Agenda

To (a) rehabilitate the water supply network; and

(b) improve financial and operational management through the implementation of a city-wide metering programme to bring water production and consumption under control.


he EBRD is considering financing the Kant Water Sub-Project. The EBRD would extend a sovereign loan of up to €1.5 million to the Kyrgyz Republic, to be on-lent to Kant City for improvement of water supply services. Water supply services in Kant are managed by a private operator under a lease agreement.

The EBRD will also seek an investment grant from an international donor of up to €3.6 million to facilitate implementation of the project which will address urgently needed water infrastructure rehabilitation needs as well as metering of water consumption.

This support will be extended under the existing EBRD sovereign framework of up to €20 million, established by the Bank to co-finance with international donors priority water and wastewater rehabilitation sub-projects across the Kyrgyz Republic. The framework envisages sovereign loans that would be on-lent to the cities for the benefit of the water companies involved and would address urgently needed water and wastewater infrastructure rehabilitation needs.
