To address the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Cabo Delgado Province in northern Mozambique, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) will support the provision and improvement of basic water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services, more specifically the N’tamba Water Supply System Network (NWSSN) rehabilitation, ensuring resilient infrastructure for internally displaced and resident population.

Hintergrund For more than six years, the province of Cabo Delgado in northern Mozambique has been affected by armed conflit, resulting in the displacement of more than 1 million people. In 2019, Cyclone Kenneth devastated Cabo Delgado, adding further stress to an already complex situation.
Ongoing violence, combined with increasing climate shocks such as cyclones, continue to cause further displacement and worsen the humanitarian situation. Internally displaced people (IDPs) are putting an enormous strain on already fragile health and water services. Cholera is endemic and an outbreak is currently affecting 3 districts in the province. Health services are limited, water supply insufficient, making adequate water, sanitation and hygiene services even more critical.
Ziele Improve access to water for the conflict affected population in Mueda plateau, Cabo Delgado, Mozambique
Zielgruppen The target group of the intervention are internally displaced populations in host communities or camps, host communities/residents and returnees in the catchment area of the N’tamba water supply system network.
Around 148’194 internally displaced population and host community members will benefit from improved access to water.
Mittelfristige Wirkungen The conflict affected population in the catchment area of the N’tamba water supply system network benefit from emergency and sustainable water supply solutions  

Erwartete Resultate:  

  • Emergency water supply for underserved crisis affected population is provided 
  • Rehabilitate and support operation of N’tamba water supply system network as a sustainable source of water

Resultate von früheren Phasen:  

Single Phase. However, during a previous intervention through Solidarités International, between November 2021 and September 2022, the following results were achieved:

  • Supplied around 19’000 m3 of water and reduced water trucking needs delivered to IDPs, hence reducing overall costs of water supply services to conflict affected population in the Mueda catchment area by increasing N’tamba Water Supply System Network resilience and by reducing losses through partial substitution of main lines and ad hoc fixing 
  • Promoted best hygiene practices reaching around 25’000 people 
  • Distributed 3,095 kits (non-food items, shelter and hygiene kits) to IDPs
  • Provided basic sanitation facilities to 13’000 IDP’s 
  •  Strengthened the water utility capacity to monitor water trucking
