GPL and MCTA sign memorandum aimed at desalination of seawater for human consumption

On the day that the city of Luanda celebrated another anniversary, 25 January, the Government of the Province of Luanda (GPL) and the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Environment (MCTA) signed a memorandum of understanding that aims to desalinate water from the sea for human consumption. The document also provides for the implementation of projects for recycling and transforming plastic waste into biofuels.


According to a note from the GPL, made available on its Facebook page, at the ceremony, Ana Paula de Carvalho, governor of Luanda, thanked the workers for their efforts who contribute to keeping the city in a "place worthy of living", highlighting that the agreement " only achieved the expected results, with the dedication of all the technicians involved in the process, both from the MCTA and the GPL".

He also took the opportunity to mention that the various environmental challenges that are caused by human action, such as the extinction of animal species, end up degrading the ecosystem and that, in order to mitigate these effects, the State institutions have been working to find and adopt "measures and best practices that aim to reverse the current situation" and thus ensure "that future generations find favorable conditions to live".

Ana Paula de Carvalho, according to the note, considered the implementation of the memorandum to be relevant, since it will enable the reuse of waste, but also promote tourism in a sustainable way and promote cultural programs that aim to "develop communities, through the production of biofuel and the desalination of sea water for drinking, and also the use of solid urban waste for the production of electricity".

Filipe Zau, Minister of Culture, Tourism and Environment, classified the memorandum as innovative and that it is based on a circular economy.

For him, the document "will contribute to the sustainable development of communities, since the use of waste, as well as the desalination of seawater, will bring transversal results, with emphasis on Tourism, the creation of jobs and the production of organic fertilizers to leverage family farming, which will reduce hunger and poverty".
