Japanese Ambassador tours Darfur project sites
H.E. Mr. Hideki Ito, the Ambassador of Japan to Sudan, is touring several UNOPS-implemented project sites 26-29 September 2016.
Among the sites on the list is a recently completed 15-month project in West and East Darfur designed to improve water security for vulnerable communities.
UNOPS provides infrastructure, procurement and project management services to help its partners and communities build a better future.
The project was designed to meet the increasing demand for water accessibility in the areas, improve water quality and decrease waterborne diseases.
At the end of the project, a high-quality pumping station and water supply equipment were handed over to the Government of Sudan.
"The good coordination and collaboration of various stakeholders – including the Government of Japan, various Sudanese Government Ministries, UNOPS and local communities – led to the success of the project," said Eyob Getachew, Head of UNOPS Office in Sudan.
