Maputo, the capital of Mozambique and its largest city, is home to 1.2 million people. Although an estimated 70 percent of Maputo's residents live in informal settlements that often lack safe drinking water and sanitation, in recent years the local government has made substantial efforts to upgrade infrastructure and services across the city. Many promising initiatives are under way, including a ten-year World Bank-funded project which aims to improve the city's capacity to deliver services, and a master plan for urban development in Maputo.
