Water and Sanitation

Water is essential for the life of all living beings and is probably the most precious resource on earth. Water serves all human industries, agriculture and therefore occupies a key place in socio-economic development. The planning and implementation of water supply infrastructure is an imperative for governments. Millions of water towers, km of water supply and distribution networks will have to be built and/or rehabilitated in the coming years all over Africa, both in rural and urban areas which are constantly expanding.

Intelligent management and optimization systems for these drinking water facilities will have to be installed.
