Access to drinking water is a key issue in Mozambique and Maputo. In the capital city, the coverage rate was estimated at 40%, while the government aims to reach over 70% coverage by 2015 (Millenium Goals). Fundo de Investimento Património do Abastecimento de Água (FIAPG), a public fund endowed by the Mozambican state and responsible for water services in Maputo, and the Aeroportos de Moçambique (ADM), a public company to which management was delegated by leasing, are partners to this initiative.
The project supports FIPAG with:
- Upgrading the only existing pumping and treatment plant in Umbeluzi;
- Renovating, reinforcing and expanding the existing networks (better coverage and loss limitation);
- Rehabilitating existing supply centres, including ground tanks, pumping stations and water towers.
- Increase of drinking water coverage to reach 620,000 additional people;
- Increase in the number of users and, correspondingly, of the turnover of the supply company: Águas da Região de Maputo (AdeM);
- Global improvement of the sector’s finances for the benefit of the operator, FIPAG and, ultimately, to users, through maintaining tariffs at the lowest level possible.
