Water projects in Africa – a multifaceted and lucrative industry with a growing appetite for clean and accessible water just waiting for you to capitalise on.
Sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation is an important part of the millennium development goals (MDGs). The lack of access to clean water for consumption and sanitation is a problem that has set Africa back in its attempts to develop and compete with the rest of the world.
The economic side of water practises
The social and economic effects caused by a lack of clean water, are often the highest priorities of African communities when they speak of their own development. The World Health Organization (WHO) has shown this in economic terms: for every US$1 invested in water and sanitation, there is an economic return of between US$3 and US$34!
Current practices for water and wastewater treatment in Africa are insufficient to ensure safe water and basic sanitation, as there is a shortfall in technology and equipment to harvest and treat rainwater. The good news is … this is a problem we can solve.
To address this challenge, joint efforts are needed, including transforming to a green economy, innovating technologies, improving operation and maintenance, improving governance and management, promoting public participation, and establishing water quality standards.
Africa needs large investment in projects and the proper infrastructure to ensure that water is clean and safe for consumption with the assurance of and consistency in supply to households and industry.
Project e-books provide greater insight
These project e-books are designed to give insight on the water projects that are planned or underway across Africa, that will add to your knowledge and direct you to an investment that you would like to be part of.
These reports set out to contribute to discussions on, and offer practical solutions to, challenges related to water infrastructure asset management in the African context, highlighting the most current and notable future project initiatives and emerging opportunities across Africa. We have tried to verify the facts to the best of our knowledge. However, the selected projects by no means offer a complete picture of the complex domain of water infrastructure asset management. We advise further research to ensure you are using the most up-to-date information.
