Climate-Smart Development in Mozambique: Using Renewable Energy for Sustainable Access to Safe and Affordable Drinking Water in Gaza Province

> Mozambique show map hide map

Project summary

Enabel proposes a wider reaching and crosscutting project aimed at climate-smart access to safe and affordable drinking water for vulnerable populations in Gaza through the combination of renewable energy, desalination where required, empowerment of communities and involvement of local economic stakeholders in the establishment, management and operation of water supply net-works. The vulnerability of the selected communities to climate change due to their low-lying topography, lack of general infrastructure, and prolonged droughts as well as occasional floods is exacerbated by the increased pressure on natural resources due to the recent resettlement of people displaced by previous floods in 2003 and 2013. The complexity of these factors compelled Enabel to opt for an innovative systemic approach to improve climate-resilient access to water and sanitation with climate co-benefits by investing in climate adaptation as well as mitigation.
