Project Description

The objective of the project is to strengthen the institutional capacity of selected water sector agencies and increase water service coverage in target cities. The additional financing (AF) will:

  1. Fill a financing gap by replacing existing counterpart co-financing to ensure timely implementation, which has been threatened by an unanticipated change in Government of Angola (GoA’s) financial situation, linked to the downturn in global oil prices; and
  2. Scale up support to sector institutions to undertake their mandates for sanitation management and to address the challenges of urban sanitation through a pilot project in sanitation.

The AF will finance the following components:

  1. Water supply institutional strengthening and capacity development;
  2. Water resources management;
  3. Rehabilitation and expansion of water supply production and distribution;
  4. Management and engineering support; and
  5. Piloting small-scale sanitation service delivery in peri-urban areas.
