(Business in Cameroon) - In 2020, the rural water supply and sanitation project will launch works to provide drinking water to 60 Cameroonian villages. This was revealed during the first session of the government project’s steering committee.

With a total budget of XAF18 billion, this project will build 80 water towers with a combined capacity of 8900 cubic metres, 995 standpipes and 242 km of piping. There are also plans to install solar panels in pumping stations.

This project, which will run for a period of 4 years, will help improve access to drinking water in Cameroon. In 2018, a study by the national institute of statistics indicated that this access ration was only 45% in rural areas, compared to about 77% in urban areas.
