The Berkani neighborhood near Meknès was largely "unplanned", and most residents there had no running water or electricity. Thanks to a pilot project funded by a grant from the Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA), over 10,504 households have been connected to the piped water services and 9,036 households to the sanitation network in poor peri-urban targeted neighborhoods of Casablanca, Meknès and Tangier.
Salma El Fatimi and her family benefitted from the subsidized connections through the pilot project and now have access, in their home, to potable running water.Previously they had to fetch water at at public standpipe. Photo: Arne Hoel / World Bank
