Benin : Support to the National Water Company of Benin (SONEB) and Beninese Local Authorities

At the end of 2015, German Cooperation - GIZ initiated with IOWater two support missions for skill development for the management of drinking water supply, sanitation and household waste utilities in rural areas.
The first mission studied the technical restart of the educational platforms of “SONEB” internal training center.
The second mission developed an action plan with the Beninese Local Authorities, which includes a dialogue between the various stakeholders of rural services and the improvement of management tools and procedures.
The rural, public or private, stakeholders’ needs for capacity building will also be assessed in the future and will feed the economic model for the operation of “SONEB” training center.
