Water, Waste & Energy: Prospects for essential services in Africa

The new Veolia Institute publication - 2021

The Veolia Institute has published a new issue of its Facts Reports review on the theme of essential services in Africa.

The issue of access to essential services, in particular water, sanitation, waste collection and treatment, and energy supply is at the crossroads of the environmental and societal challenges of the African continent. 

How can innovative solutions that meet these challenges be scaled up? What coalitions of actors will make it possible to address these challenges? How can we support the development of sustainable cities in Africa?

Dedicated to access to essential services in Africa, the new issue of the Veolia Institute Review brings together some 20 contributions around three themes:  outlook and challenges for essential services in Africa; the high-potential innovations for a fast-changing continent; the conditions needed for scaling up successfully.
