    APA-Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso)

    The city of Ouagadougou in partnership with the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Burkinabe government has initiated a project for the construction of sanitation and waste management infrastructure costing 28 billion CFA francs. APA learned on Saturday from municipal sources.

    According to the same source, the infrastructure as part of the Ouagadougou Outreach Project and has been jointly financed with 25 billion CFA francs by the AfDB Group, 2 billion CFA francs by the Burkinabe government and one billion CFA francs by the City Hall.

    The project covers exactly four sub-projects launched and managed by the Municipal Agency of Major Works (AMGT), whose first project concerns the development of the 4.2-km Mogho Naaba backwater canal and the rainwater sanitation for three flood-prone areas.

    The second concerns the extension of the waste sorting and recycling center. The third project concerns the construction and rehabilitation of about 20 collection and sorting centers, while the fourth concerns the construction of the Rimkieta district scupper.

    The mayor of Ouagadougou, Armand Pierre Beouinde, accompanied by a strong delegation made a field visit on Friday December 29, 2017 to see for himself the progress in the implementation of those projects.

    The visit shows that the overall completion rate of infrastructure is 67 percent. Taken individually, the completion of the Mogho Naaba canal and its associated facilities is 55 percent completed; the Rimkieta district culverts are at 77 percent; the sorting and collection centers at 60 percent; and the extension of the waste treatment and recovery center is 98 percent.

    For the later infrastructure (waste treatment and recovery center), its provisional delivery is planned for January 2018.

    The project closing date, originally scheduled for June 2018, has been extended for one year to May 31, 2019.
