New WB report on hydraulic infrastructures sector
10 September 2010
The World Bank has just published a report on the water sector recommending that States should manage their hydraulic resources more skilfully.
In particular, it reveals that the first step to better water management is carrying out a hydrological survey.
Again according to the report, the World Bank must follow a "more integrated" approach to the management of water resources, in order to meet the increasing demand.
It also suggests that the institution should reinforce its aid to water management in agriculture.
Finally, the report notes that the increase in lending activity in this sector has been accompanied by an improvement in results.
The "Water for all" programme is one of the projects which have benefited from aid by development partners.
As part of this programme, last Tuesday in Angola the secretary of State for Water, Luís Filipe da Silva, inaugurated a system to supply drinking water in Mussiringinge, reports the Angop press agency. It has a capacity of 350 litres of water per hour.
