A lack of water supply and sanitation services is a major concern for the Koshrabad region. As a result, waterborne diseases are prevalent and women and children must spend many hours fetching water for household use. This project, therefore, aims at improving health indicators and living conditions of approximately 68,000 people through the construction and upgrading of water supply infrastructure. This will include extending main water lines and constructing distribution networks to bring drinking water to the regional center in Koshrabad and 77 surrounding settlements.
