The Bolivian government has approved a US$ 126 million 14-year loan from Andean Development Cooperation (CAF) for water and irrigation project (PROAR) as part of a five-year programme. Over 600,00 people will get new (400,000 people) or improved (200,000) access to drinking water.
The projects, involving the Ministry of Environment and Water (MMyA) in coordination with municipal governments, will serve rural scattered populations and small towns. Implementation will start in January 2011.
