The Swedish International Cooperation and Development Agency will provide 35.5 million Swedish kronor (USD4.5 million) to support a water resource management project in Sudan, which is led by nonprofit organization, International Aid Services.

The two-year project seeks to enhance the delivery of safe water solutions to Sudanese villages by developing water resources in schools, health facilities and public meeting places, the Sudan Tribune reports.

The project also includes a community development component that seeks to strengthen community-level project management.
