Georgia Secures ADB Loan for Water, Sanitation Project

The Asian Development Bank is lending $500 million to support the improvement of water and sanitation services in six Georgian towns.

The loan will finance infrastructure improvements in the six secondary towns across Georgia with the aim of strengthening these towns’ water and sanitation systems. These improvements, to be carried out through the Urban Services Improvement Investment Program, support Georgia’s long-term sector development plan, which seeks to provide reliable and safe water and sanitation services to all urban residents by 2020.
