The East Africa
Water Summit

Past Events

The water sector has been and still is the BIGGEST earth science discipline in Eastern Africa. Groundwater has been used in mega irrigation projects, mega infrastructure projects, real estate developments but still, there is extraordinarily so much business left. From this background, the 2016 summit was themed: “SUSTAINABLE GROUNDWATER INVESTMENT”

In a majority of businesses, a huge chunk of revenue earned is directed to settling power bills and other related costs. 40 percent of operating costs for drinking water systems is used on energy, i.e. from pump houses, to lighting, to generators and so on. This can however be reduced significantly. From this background, the 2017 summit is themed: “IMPROVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY”
