USAID – Taqadum Weekly Report, D386, February 24 – March 1, 2016

As a direct result of GSP/Taqadum’s Service Delivery Improvement Plan (SDIP) development process, Diwaniyah’s Municipality Directorate was able to identify a short-term solution that involved the complete rehabilitation of an asphalt factory that had been shutdown for several years due to emissions issues and a lack of materials. Since the factory reopened making asphalt available, more than 94,400 square meters of roads have been paved, including the main roads leading to the city center as well as the Al-Sedoor areas. To date, this SDIP-developed solution has benefitted 84,000 residents in Diwaniyah.
