Sustainable water use in Cameroon

INTEWAR – Innovative Technologies for the containment of Water Associated Diseases

Due to its geographical location and meteorological conditions, the central African country Cameroon is regularly exposed to floods, which are increasing in frequency and intensity as a result of climate change. At the same time, droughts are also becoming more frequent. Rapid population growth is also increasing the already high settlement pressure, resulting in uncontrolled settlements where hygienic conditions and supply structures are often critical. In these areas, extreme climatological events have catastrophic effects on human health, but also cause immense economic and ecological damage.
