Mott MacDonald wins work on two EU water programmes

Mott MacDonald has been appointed to provide assistance on two EU funded programmes, one in Papua New Guinea to help improve water supply and sanitation and the other, for the continuation of a water sector institutional development programme in Romania.

In Papua New Guinea, Mott MacDonald, in association with ULG Northumbrian (the lead company), has been appointed by the government to implement technical assistance for the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation (RWSS) programme. The overall objective of the two-year RWSS programme is to increase access to safe water supply and sanitation facilities for rural communities and in doing so improve health and reduce the time and effort involved in collecting water. The intention is to achieve this objective through the implementation of sustainable community schemes in selected rural areas using an integrated approach involving community development, training in health and hygiene, technical skills and gender awareness.

The project team will be based in the National Department of Health in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea and its work will involve extensive travel to remote and isolated communities building support for the programme to be successfully implemented.

In Romania Mott MacDonald has won a further role on the EU funded SAMTID programme (Institution Building to Support the Small and Medium Towns Infrastructure Development). The initial phase of the SAMTID programme which ran during 2005 was aimed at improving financial and operating performance (FOPIP) in five newly formed Regional Operating Companies (ROCs) in the water sector. This latest project involves providing continuing support to the ROCs involved in the pilot phase and assisting five additional ROCs joining the programme. The Mott MacDonald team will also provide capacity building support at ministry level in Bucharest.
