African Development Bank (AfDB) loans funds to construction of water treatment and sanitation infrastructure in Benin

The UK guarantees two African Development Bank (AfDB) loans of $239 million for Mauritius and Benin. As part of a climate financing program, this support will enable the construction of energy and sanitation infrastructure.

As part of the “Room to Run” (R2RS) program, the African Development Bank (AfDB) is lending $239 million to Benin and Mauritius. This UK-guaranteed climate financing will support flood control in Benin. The two development partners are contributing $129 million (including a $106 million loan) to the Projet d’assainissement pluvial des villes secondaires (PAPVS).

This initiative by the Beninese government aims to build primary structures for draining runoff water to outlets. It is being implemented in the towns of Porto-Novo, Abomey-Calavi, Bohicon, Abomey, Ouidah, Sèmè-Kpodji, Parakou and Natitingou. Also financed by the West African Development Bank (BOAD), the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), the PAPVS also aims to reduce the prevalence of waterborne diseases caused by flooding.
