Achieving water security in Lusaka West through the power of partnerships Stories

12 April, 2021

Lusaka’s population of almost 2.8 million people is growing at approximately 5% per annum. This is increasing demand for goods, services and labour for the city’s manufacturers. However, in Lusaka, like in many rapidly growing cities in Southern Africa, growth in population and manufacturing industries has not been matched by the development of water infrastructure. The expanding gap between demand for water and water supply is a challenge that the Lusaka Water Supply and Sanitation Company (LWSC) aims to address.

Cowater International-managed Cities and Infrastructure for Growth Zambia (CIG Zambia) Project, funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, is working with a range of local and international stakeholders to improve access to clean water in Lusaka West region, attract investments in water infrastructure, create jobs and improve health outcomes for the local residents.
