Project Description

According to bank documents, the project objective is to improve urban infrastructure and strengthen institutional capacity for sustainable urbanization in Maputo.

The project will help the Municipal Council of Maputo (CMM) implement the most challenging and transformative priorities of its recently approved Maputo Municipal Development Plan (PDM 2019-23). Firstly, the project will help the CMM to improve the quality of life of the urban poor living in the most vulnerable informal settlements. Secondly, the project will help to harness the full potential of the city center by financing critical urban infrastructure and public spaces, and improve urban mobility. Thirdly, the project will help CMM to implement effective land use instruments and green infrastructure in KaTembe Municipal District in order to build the foundations of sustainable urban growth. The project will also provide incentives to help the CMM achieve key performance improvements through disbursement linked indicators (DLIs).
