Programa de saneamento básico para comunidades rurais no estado do Ceará: Adaptação às mudanças climáticas
Este programa contribuirá para o alcance da meta brasileira de universalização de serviços básicos de água e saneamento e para o desenvolvimento socialmente inclusivo nas áreas rurais de um dos estados mais pobres do Brasil, o Ceará. O Ceará tem uma população estimada de 9 milhões, 4% da população total do Brasil, e compartilha apenas 2% do PIB nacional. O Ceará está localizado em uma região semiárida, com características de altas temperaturas médias, baixa precipitação e secas recorrentes, onde a infraestrutura de água e saneamento é insuficiente. Apenas um terço dos domicílios em áreas rurais têm acesso a água potável segura e canalizada.
O objetivo geral do programa é fortalecer a resiliência da população rural em relação à escassez de água e melhorar o acesso à água potável, ao saneamento e ao tratamento de esgoto. Para isso, o programa reforçará as capacidades dos SISARs (Sistemas de saneamento rural integrados — que sã...
