Project General Description

The Institutional and Sustainability Support to Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Service Delivery Project aims to improve water sector governance, strengthen institutional capacity and efficiency in the water and sanitation sector institutions at central and provincial level, and improve access to sustainable water supply and sanitation services. The Project will result in the empowerment of people through the capacity development and creation of employment directly within the utilities. The Project focuses in seven provinces of Angola namely: Cabinda, Cunene, Lunda Norte, Lunda Sul, Namibe, Bengo, and Cuanza Sul. Other provinces are being covered by other partners and GOA.

Project Objectives

The Project’s main outcomes include (i) the establishment and effective functioning of seven Provincial Water Supply and Sanitation Utilities which are autonomous, (ii) enhanced capacity for service provision at the central and provincial levels, and (iii) expanded access to water supply and sanitation. The project is planned to be implemented over a 60 months period beginning January 2016 at a cost of US$ 154.71 million. The project will contribute to the achievement of the country’s Vision 2025 objective of improved health and social wellbeing of the population through equitable, empowering women through capacity development and employment creation and inclusive development and universal access to improved water and sanitation services. The specific project development objective is to improve sector governance, strengthen institutional capacity and efficiency in the water and sanitation sector institutions at central and provincial level and improve access and service delivery.

Beneficiaries

The Project will directly benefit a total population of 922 thousands immediately and indirectly (but gradually) all the 2.3 million urban population of the seven provinces through improved management and service delivery. The project will in particular increase access to water supply for an additional 338,000 people in peri urban areas of the provincial capitals and an additional 75,000 people having access to safe disposal of wastewater. The project will develop sector gender policy, strategy and action plan and will ensure empowerment of women through capacity development in training and employment generation through the management of water kiosks and fertiliser waste by-products.
