WATER

Over 2 billion people globally live in countries experiencing high water stress and of these, about 40% (800 million) live in Sub-Saharan Africa. Within the same region, only 44% of the urban population and 24% of the rural population have proper and adequate sanitation. The growing physical water scarcity is further exacerbated by declining water resources, pollution, rapid urbanization, increasing population pressure and climate change. All this further heightened by the lack of water management infrastructure, sufficient resources and responsive policy regimes. At EED, we take a nexus approach (water-energy-climate change) in defining and addressing these complex challenges. Our water advisory team takes on water resource management, water supply and sanitation technology options, service delivery models, access to finance including performance-based contracting, result-based financing and strategic private-public partnerships.
