Water

Africa's water sector

Indispensable for life AND economic activities, potable water and wastewater utilities in Africa are struggling to cope with the increasing demand for services, especially in rapidly growing urban areas. Responding adequately to this ever present need necessitates strong and active partnerships between the private sector and municipal governments.
As one of the key driving forces for economic development, a dedicated forum where the pan-African water industry can gather to find solutions to the challenges facing water resources. Furthermore, it provides an opportunity for the water agenda to solidify itself as a formidable platform dedicated to encourage industry solutions to provide solutions by and for the industry.

WHY EXHIBIT

WATER FACTS

In a recent report published by the World Resource Institute, the Global Commission with more than 200 experts finds that bold climate action could deliver at least $26 trillion in economic benefits by 2030, highlighting the global shift for a low carbon economy, in which one of the main drivers for this shift to be actioned, is the water industry.

Securing safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene for all in sub-Saharan Africa would require $35 billion per year in capital costs. This highlights the growing need to invest in better water management and infrastructure. With a significant funding gap needing to be bridged to invest in better water management and infrastructure, strong and active partnerships between the private sector and municipal governments are needed to respond to the growing demand for water services.
