The second component of the project is implementation support and capacity building. This component estimated at MAD 67.5 million before taxes (US$8.4 million), will provide technical assistance (TA) to ONEP's project implementation and capacity building (CB) to ONEP's overall Rural Water Supply (RWS) Program. Additional capacity building tasks pertaining to this component have been identified and valued at MAD 17.8 million. They will be implemented subject to the mobilization by ONEP of the corresponding funds.
