Upgrading water-treatment plants in the overseas territories

Onema has signed an agreement with the State and the State-owned CDC bank to assist in bringing water-treatment plants in overseas territories up to standard. Onema will be in charge of drafting annual reports on the use of CDC funds and on the progress of each project, and will take part in the annual meeting of the steering-committee for the agreement. Since 2008, Onema has contributed to funding of investment programmes for wastewater-treatment equipment as a solidarity measure between river basins and, at the signing of the agreement, it renewed its commitment by announcing that it will spend 12 million euros on 20 projects in overseas territories in 2009.
