The Urban Councils Association of Zimbabwe joins the world in celebrating #worldwaterday 2022 under the theme “Groundwater: Making the invisible visible”
“Urban areas are expected to absorb all of the world’s population growth over the next four decades, as well as accommodating significant rural-to-urban migration. The vast majority of these people will be living in overcrowded slums with inadequate, often non-existent, water and sanitation services.
Safe drinking water systems and adequate sanitation that effectively disposes of human waste will be essential to ensure cities and towns grow sustainably. Extending these services to the millions of urbanites currently unserved will play a key role in underpinning the health and security of cities, protecting economies and ecosystems, and minimizing the risk of pandemics.” https://www.unwater.org/water-facts/urbanization/
