Abstract: Water supply in Maputo is quite unique in Africa as the service is provided not only by an incumbent operator contracted by the public authorities but also by a striking number of 450 small-scale independent private operators producing water through their own boreholes. These operators are mostly concentrated in peri-urban areas and provide services ranging from standpipe to private connections reaching more than 500,000 people. In order to extend the public service to the peri-urban areas where the conventional network is not present, a multi donor’s funded project has implemented local PPP mobilizing these private operators and the national water assets management institution, FIPAG. This paper, after a brief description of the Maputo context, describes the setting up and the first monitoring results of these local PPP.
