Detailed description of project Back

The Luxembourg Agency for Development Cooperation (Lux-Development) is in the process of Formulation of the above mentioned project as mandated by, the Luxembourg Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) within the context of the Bilateral Agreement between the governments of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Republic of Namibia.

The project was requested by the Rundu Town Council and Katima Mulilo Town Council. The two Town Councils expressed the need for additional assistance in Development Planning, water and sanitation. The National Planning Commission (NPC) confirmed the need and the prioritisation within the National Development Plan – II (NDP-II).

In October 2005, the NPC submitted a Project request prepared by the Ministry of Regional and Local Government, Housing and Rural Development (MRLGHRD) for the formalisation of informal settlements and additional assistance in Water and sanitation in the Towns of Rundu (Kavango Region) and Katima Mulilo (Caprivi Region) taking into account two major components:

  • The formalisation of informal settlements in both Rundu and Katima Mulilo ensuring full participation of the Town Councils;
  • The extension of the water and sanitation network of Rundu ensuring a good balance and coherence between the capacity building, the community integration and the infrastructure.

The proposed consultancy will address the second component of the project.
