For the first time, IWA members and delegates will have the opportunity to celebrate the technological innovations in terms of water reuse on the African Continent.
Situated in the centre of the most arid country in sub-Saharan Africa, Windhoek has had throughout its existence, to find innovative ways to ensure that the growth of the City can be sustained. In Windhoek, direct potable reclamation, artificial aquifer recharge, water demand management and dual pipe irrigation systems have become part of standard vocabulary. These processes had been embraced before the terms integrated water resource management and closing the water loop, had been coined.
