T is a significant lack of proper wastewater treatment in most African countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa

T is a significant lack of proper wastewater treatment in most African countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Untreated sewage effluent is one of the most common types of pollution found around urban rivers and in groundwater sources in many African cities. By 2020, 75−250 million people in Africa may be exposed to increased water stress due to climate change and pollution will only exacerbate the situation.

Africa is currently the least urbanised region in the world, but this is changing fast. Of the billion people living on the African continent, about 40 per cent lives in urban areas. The urban population in Africa doubled from 205 million in 1990 to 400 million in 2010, and by 2050, it is expected that this would have tripled to 1.23 billion. Of this urban population, 60 per cent is living in slum conditions. In a time of such urban growth, Africa is likely to experience some of the most severe impacts of climate change, particularly when it comes to water and food security. This places huge pressures on the growing urban populations. This report shows that there is a way forward for a more sustainable future where restoration of ecosystems, often in the green hills and watersheds surrounding cities, can provide cheaper, efficient and resilient water supply systems in a changing world.
