The document provides the pre-feasibility report for the investment opportunities proposed by the Hargeisa Water Agency.
The Hargeisa Water Agency (HWA) presents opportunities for catalytic investments ranging from US$30,000 to US$2.5m that could cumulatively triple HWA revenues from an average of SLSH 28bn (US$ 2.7m) to over SLSH 82bn (US$7.8m) within 3 years. The key opportunities lie in investments that leverage grant-financed infrastructure to generate additional revenue. Donors are currently implementing infrastructure projects worth more than US$40m to develop and link new water supply systems to an upgraded transmission line and distribution network in Hargeisa City. Funding gaps and surplus capacity generated by these projects create commercially viable windows for investment. In addition, there are smaller investments that could help HWA optimize its existing operations.
