07 April 2015

The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) has approved a $123.77-million loan to Angola to finance the country’s Institutional and Sustainability Support to Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Service Delivery project.

The project was aimed at improving water sector governance, strengthening institutional capacity and efficiency in the water and sanitation sector institutions at central and provincial level and improving access to sustainable water supply and sanitation services.

According to the AfDB, the project would directly benefit 922,000 people and, ultimately, the urban population of 2.3-million across the seven provinces, through improved management and service delivery.

It would further increase access to water supply for an additional 338,000 people in peri-urban areas of the provincial capitals and another 75,000 people who would have access to safe wastewater infrastructure.
