Access to safe drinking water in Angola
Large numbers of people were displaced during the war and moved to urban areas, living in overcrowded slums, where the
infrastructure did not exist or could not cope with their influx. The sharp increase in access to safe drinking water by 2004 reflects the emergency assistance and humanitarian resources that flowed in following the peace agreement, but in some cases was not sustainable.
Angola has witnessed improved access to sanitation in the same period. With the increasing oil revenue and more stability, safe
drinking water and sanitation should become more accessible in both urban and rural areas.
