Expanding Access to Water in Cabo Verde, From the Ground Up

As part of the Cabo Verde Compact, MCC has helped the water-scarce island nation establish a financially sound and accountable institution to deliver clean water and sanitation services to Cabo Verdean households and businesses.

By strengthening the country’s capacity and institutions, MCC is supporting the Government of Cabo Verde in its efforts to improve governance, operations and inclusivity in the delivery of water and sanitation services. More than 600,000 people are expected to benefit from MCC’s investments in the sector over the next 20 years.
