Planning and construction supervision of the rehabilitation of the water distribution centres in Beira, Mozambique


Under multilateral agreements with the World Bank, the Government of Mozambique (GoM) is implementing reforms in the field of urban water supply aimed at improving the supply, quality and the efficiency. Among other things, the program includes investments in the rehabilitation and expansion of the urban water supply in Beira, Mozambique's second largest city. The Fundo de Investimento e Património do Abastecimento de Água - FIPAG (Investment Fund and Asset Manager of Water Supply) is responsible for the implementation.

The main task of FIPAG is to ensure an adequate and safe water supply for the population in accordance with the Mozambican health and hygiene standards.
