Access to Water Through the Informal Water Supply System in Luanda, Angola

01/12/2010

This paper analyzes the informal water supply system in Luanda. It focuses on how the inhabitants are being provided with water, and how the informal water supply system influences access to water by the peri-urban inhabitants. By integrating qualitative methods, it turned out that access to water through the informal water supply system is not only influenced by price and distribution, but also by more underlying structures, such as neighbour relations and social capital. . Households in peri-urban areas that have invested in a water tank and possess major economic capital, have better access to water than those households without a water tank.
