Water supply: government to meet target

Minister of Public Works, Felicio Zacarias, on 26 March insisted that by the end of this year 55 percent of all Mozambicans will have access to clean drinking water, thus meeting the target in the government's five year programme.

Speaking in a debate on poverty alleviation in the Assembly of the Republic, Zacarias said that particular attention is being paid to Nampula and Zambezia provinces, which between them are home to around 40 percent of the Mozambican population, but which have the lowest rates of drinking water coverage.

In 2004, he said, only 18.6 percent of the Nampula population had access to safe water. That has now doubled, to 36.1 percent, but is still the lowest rate in the country. Over the same period, the coverage in Zambezia has risen from 22.8 to 37.5 percent of the population. By comparison, in Maputo province, the rate rose from 54.9 to 79.5 percent. The sparsely populated northern province of Niassa saw a similar rise, from 59.2 to 79.1 percent.

Taking the country as a whole, over this period, coverage in rural areas rose from 43 to 52 percent, and in urban areas from 36 to 50 percent.
