WATER

The challenges

Access to electricity and access to water: same problems, same struggle! Often, the same people are involved in these problems with their shared multiple challenges: food security, health, economic development, empowering women and adapting to climate change.

The solutions

Access to clean water throughout the year is often inseparable from having access to electricity, by their complementarity and their interconnectivity, both in the service of human and economic development.

1Sink deep boreholes to reduce the risk of waterborne diseases

Sinking a deep borehole and equipping it with a solar-powered motor provides clean water and helps reduce the risk of waterborne diseases. In a context of increasing water scarcity, energy is essential in penetrating aquifers that are increasingly deep. Due to the lack of clean wells and improved sanitation, many people drink and wash in water from polluted sources. Many of these are young children, who die each year from diseases related to water, sanitation and hygiene.

2Install standpipes to supply several water outlets in a village

In areas affected by long periods of drought, access to clean water is a vital food safety issue. It also reduces the need for water collection, often the task of women and children, and this frees up time for other activities and promotes economic development.

3Build a water distribution network for supplying market gardening and farming

Developing food crops and livestock farming provides food security for villagers. An irrigation system connected to a well means year-round cultivation. Electricity enables the use of food processing machinery, people to be better fed and the development of local businesses. The surplus can be sold at local markets and generates income.
