The cities of Maputo, Beira, Quelimane, Tete and Nampula will enjoy better sanitation conditions in the near future, thanks to an investment of US$165 million for construction and the expansion of existing systems.
The interventions will benefit close to 200,000 people living in areas with serious sanitation problems and deficiencies in wastewater treatment and sewage networks.
The project is financed by the World Bank, as part of efforts to ensure access to safe sanitation in large cities. The initial budget was US$115 million, but a further US$50 million was added to respond to the Covid-19 emergency and cover fluctuations in market prices.
Last week, a World Bank mission visited Mozambique with the objective of providing technical support in the implementation of the Urban Sanitation Project (PSU).
