This programme aims to promote sustainable access to water and sanitation for poor neighbourhoods in Angola by enhancing the governance of the sector. The model of governance proposed entails promoting a network of autonomous units of small utilities, with the local government at the ‘centre’ confining its role to monitoring the network, regulating the sector, pushing for the autonomy of communities in the management of their water scheme. The programme will pursue the objective of bringing safe drinking water to 120,000 people initially and another 400,000 thanks to multiplier effects. To achieve these, the project seeks to: (i) establish an institutional framework guided by a rights-based approach; (ii) set-up a regulatory framework to ensure equity and inciting environment to private providers; (iii) reinforce the capacity of local administrations to monitor the network, mobilize resources and fund community water projects and (iv) put in place an accountability system.
