In order to address the issue of unsustainable water points and lack of interest in sanitation facilities in Cabo Delgado, the Aga Khan Foundation in Mozambique (AKF(M)) takes a demand responsive multisectoral approach. The water and sanitation programme facilitates the community in realising the importance of access to safe water and sanitation facilities and changing the beliefs and practices with respect to using and sustaining the interventions. The programme involves coordinating all sectors within the programme area, including health, education, agriculture and civil society, to contribute to the water and sanitation efforts of the programme area. This concerted effort brings together all stakeholders, including the community, civil society, the private sector and government.
