On March 22, 2017, the global development community will commemorate World Water Day under the theme “Wastewater”. Not only is it an opportunity to highlight the linkages between wastewater management and the Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs), but also an occasion to focus on the African Development Bank’s new approaches to turn waste water into a source of wealth.

In the report, ’Environmental Outlook to 2050’ from 2012, the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), estimates that about 1.5 billion people today live in areas seriously affected by water scarcity. According to the report, the number will increase to almost 4 billion by 2050, which will trigger a global food crisis, if we do not change our course.
