An Aid Package for Dominican Republic’s Water and Sanitation Initiative

Spain and the Inter-American Development Bank are collaborating to help improve water and sanitation services in the Dominican Republic’s poorest provinces.

The Spanish Cooperation Fund for Water and Sanitation in Latin America and the Caribbean will provide a USD35 million grant, while IDB will lend USD35 million to expand coverage of water and sanitation services in seven Dominican Republic provinces with high poverty levels, namely Independencia, Barahona, San Pedro de Macorís, San Cristóbal, Bahoruco, San Juan and Elías Piña.

IDB estimates that the project will benefit at least 205,000 people.
