Nearly half the population of Angola (49.3%) lacks access to clean drinking water and (54.7%) of households do not have access to adequate sanitation facilities. As a result, a high level of waterborne and related diseases continues to affect a large portion of the population, burdening healthcare systems, contributing to malnutrition, and restricting opportunities for economic growth and development. To mitigate this situation, USAID Angola introduced the Community Water Management Model to the Angolan government to improve water governance.
