Belgrade, November 21, 2014 - The new project funded by the Romanian government, which will be implemented by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), will support the rehabilitation of municipal sewage and water supply systems, cleaning of individual wells and other facilities important for the safe and secure water supply in municipalities of Kladovo, Majdanpek and Negotin. These municipalities are still recovering from the damages caused to communal systems and individual wells during this year's devastating floods.
The Project was signed today by H.E. Daniel Banu, Ambassador of Romania to Serbia and Ms. Irena Vojačkova - Sollorano, UNDP Resident Representative in Serbia, in the presence of Mr. Marko Blagojević, Director of the Government Office for Reconstruction and Flood Relief.
The total project value is US$ 60.000 and the money will be used to finance the purchase of equipment and works on repairing, cleaning and sanitization of water, sewage and other systems and facilities.
Around 80,000 citizens of Kladovo, Majdanpek and Negotin will benefit from the project implementation. The completion of project activities is planned within the next five months.
In addition to supporting recovery in Serbia, Romanian government helps recovery from flooding in neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina, while the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Serbia already has significant experience in the rapid and efficient sanitization, cleaning, repairs and equipping of municipal water and sewage systems due to similar project successfully implemented in six municipalities of Western Serbia, affected by the floods of May 2014.
