Eni Rovuma Basin and Area 4 Partners promote access to water and economic diversification in Metuge and Mecufi Districts in Cabo Delgado

Cabo Delgado (Mozambique), 12 December 2023 – Eni Rovuma Basin together with Cabo Delgado Government, handed over a community center, 36 solar water pumps and 10 tons of various seeds for food production that will benefit around 5,000 families in the Metuge district. The farmers will now have the opportunity to increase their productivity through the use of improved seeds that will be combined with an effective irrigation process.

In the same context, ERB also delivered various agricultural and beekeeping equipment, 8 boreholes and 5 improved latrines to the communities of Muaria, Quitivahulo, Sassalane, Muinde, Sambene, Nanguasse, Metacane and Namarapala, all in the district of Mecufi. These projects will benefit around 9,000 people who will now have greater access to drinking water and sanitation, which will contribute to reduce the spread of diseases caused by the consumption of inappropriate drinking water.

These projects are aimed at fostering social cohesion and helping to improve the living conditions and resilience of the communities where we operate by promoting income-generating and sustainability activities, as part of the Coral South FLNG project's sustainability plan and are being implemented in partnership with Unilúrio, AVSI and ADPP.

“Our approach to local development is based on the dual-flag strategy, which underpins the implementation of initiatives aimed at contributing to promoting access to basic needs such as health, education, access to water, sanitation and energy, as well as opportunities for socio-economic development." said Marica Calabrese, Managing Director of Eni Rovuma Basin.

The projects have been developed by Eni Rovuma Basin also on behalf of Area 4 Partners, namely ExxonMobil, China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH), Kogas and Galp.
