The Copperbelt Province, Northern Zambia, is the second most populous province in the country with some 2 million inhabitants, 60% of which live in underserved urban areas where access to drinking water and sanitation stands at 25% compared to national average of 38%.

The existing water and sanitation systems in the country are more than 50 years old, in a poor state and struggling to meet growing demand.  In peri-urban areas, water and sanitation access rates remain low, as the infrastructure has not kept up with the pace of urbanization.

This project aims to extend and secure sanitation and drinking water services in three cities in Copperbelt Province, thus improving the living conditions of 530,000 people by 2050.
