Water Augmentation

The augmentation of water supply to the central area of Namibia and the Cuvelai

The Central Area of Namibia (CAN) and the Cuvelai area play important roles in the social and economic development of the country. Both areas experience population and economic growth rates well above the average for Namibia. Both areas are prone (presently and in the near future) to water supply interruptions which jeopardise prospective new economic growth.

Most of the water sources within the CAN and the Cuvelai have been developed and are nearing the limit of their supply potential.

Further development and growth in both the CAN and the Cuvelai, and by extension in Namibia as a whole, is dependent on securing long-term water supply. Failure to do will result in reduced economic activity with serious social and economic consequences.
