Nearly half a million people living in rural communities and medium-sized cities in Morocco will enjoy improved access to safe drinking water thanks to a water-supply investment programme we are supporting.

A €65 million sovereign-backed loan extended by the EBRD to the Office National de l’Electricité et de l’Eau Potable (ONEE) will finance the provision of EU-quality drinking water to approximately 260 towns and rural communities in the Azilal, Ben Guerir and Ouarzazate regions. The loan is backed by €4.6 million in TC funds from Austria, the SEMED Multi-Donor Account and EBRD shareholders through the SEMED cooperation funds account.
