WASHCost Mozambique undertook a national survey to capture cost and service levels (sampling a population based on a poverty definition from the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS). The team analysed the access of poor people to services in rural and peri-urban areas. Research reveals that about 29% of the sample can be categorised as 'very poor', 36% 'poor' and 35% as 'less-poor'. The less poor tend to receive higher quantities of water, while a higher proportion of the poorest residents receive no service at all.
