What WSUP's Partners Say
Urban services are a real challenge and we need serious programmes. WSUP is the most appropriate partner we have and the experience of its members is invaluable. We are not accustomed to this type of approach, which is really adapted to the local context. WSUP can help us approach the target population that we are not currently serving and we are working together to bring water to the urban poor.
Directeur de l’equipement Eau, JIRAMA, (Antananarivo)
WSUP is assisting us to complete tertiary connections, helping us to reach 100% coverage on water and sanitation services. We have the main pipes installed but there is still a big area without the secondary and tertiary network installed and our partnership with WSUP complements our core service. After this project we will be able to extend the service to the other areas of the city where 30% of the consumers are not reached.
