AFRICA: desalination now at the heart of water supply strategies – South Africa

According to the United Nations (UN), the rate of people with safe access to drinking water has only increased from 17.9% to 23.7% in sub-Saharan Africa since 2000.

This is the case of the Agadir desalination plant (in Morocco), currently under construction, with an expected capacity of 275,000 m 3 per day. Part of the treated water, ie 125,000 m 3 per day, will supply an irrigation system in the plain of Chtouka, in the center-west of Morocco.
