Bank agrees desalination study funding in Tunisia

A study of seawater desalination at Zarat, Tunisia, was one of nine projects and programs given grants by the African Development Bank (AfDB) in agreements signed with the Tunisian government on 12 March 2010.

The grant agreements totalled US$ 6.6 million.

The donation for the Zarat study is financed from the resources of the Japanese Fund for African Private Sector Assistance (FAPA), administered by AfDB. The FAPA is a component of the enhanced assistance to the private sector in heavily indebted poor countries, a joint initiative of the Japanese International Cooperation Agency and AfDB.
