The government of the Netherlands will provide 13.5 million euros to two water supply projects in Mozambique, under two agreements signed Tuesday in Maputo, Mozambican news agency AIM reported.
The agreements aim to support the implementation of the Five Year Plan (2015/19) and the first one is focused on conducting studies and identifying new sources to collect water, improve operational efficiency, asset management consolidation, human resources development, involvement of the private sector and identifying and implementing new development strategies.
This first agreement will channel 12.5 million euros, and the remaining 1 million euros is for the second agreement, which is intended to finance the “Develop to Build” project in the cities of Beira and Dondo, in the central province of Sofala.
The second agreement will prepare the master plan and executive project to ensure conditions for the implementation of rehabilitation works and expansion of the water supply system to Beira.
The two agreements were signed by the Director General of water supply investment and asset company FIPAG, Pedro Paulino, and the deputy minister for Cooperation and Development at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, Reina Buijs.
