Our Joint Programmes

Children, Food Security and Malnutrition in Angola
Three decades of civil war have left Angola with precarious health indicators: the country has one of the highest child mortality rates in the world, and its children suffer from high levels of chronic and acute malnutrition. The Joint Programme's purpose was to alleviate hunger and malnutrition among poor and vulnerable groups in three particularly hard-hit provinces: Bie, Moxico and Cunene.
Governance of Water and Sanitation in Angola’s Poor Neighbourhoods
Improving access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation is one of the greatest development challenges in Angola. The government’s objective is to increase the proportion of people having access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation from 33% to 81% and from 48% to 74% , respectively, in the period 2003-2016. The Joint Programme supported this aim with infrastructure improvements and by enhancing the governance of the sector.
