AfWA Scores Well in the Field of City-wide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) in Africa.

The plant has been officially inaugurated on Monday, September 20, 2021 by H.E. Georges Elanga Obam, Cameroon Minister of Decentralization and Local Development. With $4,647,000 in funding provided by the French Development Agency (AFD) and the International Association of Francophone Mayors (AIMF), Cameroon’s first fecal sludge treatment station is located in Etoa, an eastern outskirts 20 kilometers away from downtown Yaounde, the political capital city of Cameroon which hosts the central offices of Cameroon government institutions.

Triggered by the African Water Association under its CWIS Program, this project is part of the second phase of the Yaounde Sanitation Project (PADY II).  

The fecal sludge treatment plant is a solution to help improve the health of the populations.

Dr. Mbaye MBEGUERE, Senior Coordinator of AfWA Sanitation Program has represented the Association at this inauguration ceremony, which is a milestone in the RASOP-Africa program implementation, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation over the period 2016-2019 and which aimed at mobilizing and strengthening the capacities of actors for better consideration, planning, resource mobilization and implementation of non-sewer sanitation in 5 African pilot cities including Yaoundé, the political capital of Cameroon. As he rightly observed: "AfWA has contributed to making Yaoundé a mentor in sanitation".
