USAID’s Community-Managed Water and Sanitation project improves water governance. Through a system of community water management activities, we help ensure affordability of water for consumers and the maintenance of water infrastructures. An important component of this system is creation and empowerment of community water and sanitation management structures through social mobilization. We also assist local administrations to plan and implement the system in their jurisdiction.
The project improves water governance and promotes behavioral change in sanitation and hygiene through ‘MoGeCa,’ the Angolan Government’s ‘Water for All’ program. It involving local communities in the planning, construction and management of water points, as a basic strategy promoting local development.
