World Bank Pledges $250 Million for Urban Drinking Water in Mozambique

The World Bank will support efforts to improve access to drinking water in Mozambique by financing a new project. The international financial institution is pledging $250 million.

The “Urban Water Security Project” will be launched soon in Mozambique. The initiative was unveiled on March 21, 2023 by the Mozambican Minister of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources, Carlos Mesquita. The project, which is still in the preparation phase, will be implemented in several cities in the south of the country prone to water shortages. The World Bank is supporting this drinking water project, which will improve service to thousands of people throughout the country.
