AWWDA’s Contribution The “Big Four” Agenda

The “Big Four” Agenda

Manufacturing

Access to safe water and improved sanitation will lead to a healthy and strong labor force for manufacturing industries.

Food Security

Construction of multipurpose dams will provide the requisite water for irrigation for food security. It is expected that this will be able to contribute to increased production of maize and potatoes as envisaged.

Affordable Health Care

Access to improved water and sanitation services will reduce exposure and minimize cases of water borne diseases and ensure a healthy population.

Affordable Housing

In order to support the government agenda of 500,000 affordable homes, the Agency will develop sustainable water and sewerage infrastructure. In the informal settlements, the Agency targets to develop dependable sanitation infrastructure to improve levels of sanitation in these areas.

Sustainable Development Goals

Our Stakeholders

Implementation of the policies, plans and programmes, compliance with set budgets and provide technical advice on priority investments.
