Sustainable water

The water challenges in developing countries

Across rural Africa an estimated 50,000 water supply points have failed, mainly due to lack of money and capacity for operation and maintenance (1)

Commercial losses in developing countries’ water supplies account for $2,6 billion every year – this is more than what the World Bank lends every year for water projects in developing countries (2)

Providing reliable access to water in the developing world is a yet unsolved global issue.

The missing link to sustainability in water supply can only be addressed through innovative solutions that break with conventional thinking and take a holistic and long-term approach.

Grundfos Lifelink water solutions confront the global water crisis head-on, meaning solid steps can be taken towards long-term sustainable water solutions.
