Nearly 200,000 inhabitants of small areas in Tunisia will benefit from significant environmental improvements thanks to a total amount of 150 million euros loan granted to the Office National de l’Assainissement (ONAS) and co-financed equally by the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
