Core area “Conserving nature and natural resources, protecting life on Earth” Improved infrastructure in water supply and sanitation
Rapid population growth, large numbers of internally displaced persons and an increasing rural exodus mean that the water and sanitation systems of country's small and medium-sized towns and cities in particular are overstretched.
Germany is helping Burkina Faso to set up and expand the requisite infrastructure and is providing finance for the installation of water pipelines, pumping stations, public standpipes and water kiosks, house and yard connections, sanitation facilities and sewerage systems primarily in densely populated areas on the outskirts of small and medium-sized towns and cities. These infrastructure measures can help to stop the spread of numerous diseases.
