Now more than ever water is the most important commodity in Africa. Without water communities, businesses and economies cannot function.

Angola is an African country on the west coast of southern Africa. It has a tropical climate with two main seasons. Summer is humid and hot and winter is cool and dry. Of all the African countries Angola normally enjoys the most rainfall but unfortunately, like all other countries in the world, it is susceptible to climate change.

Due to climate change, the country is currently experiencing the worst drought in 40 years and the water, hygiene conditions and sanitation of 1.2 million people has been affected as a direct consequence.

33.17% of the population live in rural areas and 85% of the population depend on subsistence agriculture as their main source of income.

During the Angolan war, which ended in 2002, a large part of the infrastructure was damaged and needs to be rebuilt. Since the end of the war the country has been experiencing serious problems with water supply and sanitation. The water points in areas most affected by the drought are not working.

Alternative options for water supply need to urgently be actioned.
