The Government of Republic of Zambia targets that water supply coverage ratio in urban area will be 100% by 2030. Therefore, there is an urgent need for the establishment of the operation plan for sustainable and sound management of commercial utilities (CU) and establishment of Human Resources Development Plan for improvement of technical capabilities of CU staff. Based on the background, JICA is implementing "The Project for Strengthening Capacity of Urban Water Supply Infrastructure". The Project is composed of (1) Drafting Evaluation Manual to abstract CU's challenges (2) Abstracting the challenges with Evaluation Manual (3) Formulation of Mid-Term Business Plan and Human Resources Development Plan to solve the challenges.
