The Urbanising Water World in Africa

The 2011 World Urbanising Prospect report estimates that by 2050 60% of Africans will live in urban centres. But is the water and sanitation sector fit for purpose to address this rapidly urbanising world? Do we have appropriate water technologies, human resources, fiscal investment plans and partnerships?

Dr Samuel Godfrey is Chief of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) in UNICEF’s largest WASH programme globally (Ethiopia). Prior to that Dr Godfrey was the UNICEF Chief of WASH in Mozambique and the WASH Specialist in Madhya Pradesh, India. He describes himself as an ‘implementing academic’, with an MSc and PhD in water engineering from Loughborough University’s Water Engineering and Development Centre (WEDC) and 18 years experience in the global water and sanitation sector.
