Project General Description

The present project is a response to the African Water Facility (AWF) Call for Climate Change Proposals from the Ministry of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources in Mozambique. It consist to prepare a Development Plan on Sanitation, Drainage and Solid Waste Management for the Chimoio and Inhambane Municipalities. This plan will cover sewer-sanitation, on-site sanitation, solid waste collection and disposal and drainage. The project will be implemented over 22 months, ie 14 months which will be dedicated for technical studies and 6 months for the Environmental impact and risk assessment (ESIA). The main expected outputs from the project are: (i) Development Plan for Sanitation, Drainage and Solid Waste Management; (ii) Prefeasibility Studies for selected priority solutions to sanitation, drainage and solid waste management Issues; (iii) Feasibility Studies for priority solutions; (iv) Long term Implementation Plan - and Financing Strategy; (v) ESIA for priority solutions and (vi) Environmental Management Plan.

Project Objectives

The overall objective of the project is improved socio-economic development in Mozambique and in particular for the population in Chimoio and Inhambane Municipality. Specifically, the aim is to develop, for these two municipalities, a plan for strengthening sanitation, drainage and solid waste management services covering the next 20-25 years, with a view to reducing the risks of flood and improve the health of the people.


The direct beneficiaries are the Ministry of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources, the DNA and the AIAS, and the municipalities of Chimoio and Inhambane. Ultimately, once the downstream projects are implemented, the beneficiaries will be the population in the municipalities in Chimoio and Inhambane (approximately 310,000 inhabitants combined) in terms of substantially increased resilience to climate change; improved health; reduced vulnerability to flooding.
