The need for water in Africa
About 66% of Africa is arid or semi-arid and more than 300 of the 800 million people in sub-Saharan Africa live in a water-scarce environment – meaning that they have less than 1,000 m3 per capita per year. 115 people in Africa die every hour from diseases linked to poor sanitation, poor hygiene and contaminated water.
