Mozambique Drillers Association (Associação de Perfuração de Moçambique or APM)
This case study is based largely on the following report:
World Bank. 2015. Strengthening the Domestic Drilling Industry: Lessons from the Mozambique Drillers Association. Water and Sanitation Program.
The Mozambique Drillers Association (Associação de Perfuração de Moçambique - APM) was established in 2006 with support from the World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). It developed a membership of drilling companies and associated institutions across the drilling and water sector; a framework for professional certification; provided training courses; and an online groundwater database. However, after WSP support was phased out, the APM struggled to continue given the many challenges facing it, and it has not continued to operate as hoped, and it no longer has an active online presence. This case study describes its development and achievements, and some of the challenges that have limited its continued operation.
