25 Jun 2020 by Local Press Report

The European Investment Bank has agreed to support priority water investment across Barbados, to improve water supply across the country. The USD 12 million loan to the Ministry of Finance will allow the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) to rehabilitate the island’s drinking water distribution network by improving efficiency, service quality and resilience to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change. The investments will also lead to improvements to the deteriorated wastewater treatment facilities in the water-scarce country.
