Activity Description

The Transform WASH Activity supports the Government of Mozambique’s efforts to strengthen water sector governance, increase water access, and accelerate households’ adoption of key hygiene behaviors in underserved communities in the provinces of Zambezia, Nampula, and Cabo Delgado. The Activity ensures access to quality water systems and promotes healthy hygiene practices through community and civic awareness. 

Activity Objectives

  • Strengthen policy implementation and institutional capacity to deliver WASH services
  • Increase technical, financial, and management capacity in WASH-related government programs and private providers
  • Improve water and sanitation financing and business environment for the private sector
  • Accelerate uptake and maintenance of key water and hygiene behaviors among households and institutions
  • Increase women’s leadership within the sector, and enhanced decision-making power within the household for WASH products and services

Mozambique Transform WASH supports national and local government agencies through training in tariff collection, data management, and helping them establish policies that encourage private sector financing and management. With a focus on small towns, rural growth centers, and peri-urban areas, the project works with donors, the private sector, and civil society to foster a sound business environment. 

This Activity builds on lessons from previous USAID programs, such as Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Financing (WASH-FIN), Supporting the Policy Environment for Economic Development (SPEED+), and Strengthening Communities through Integrated Programming (SCIP).
