The AfDB, the African Development Bank, plans to approve, in July 2018, the release of an amount of 130 billion CFA francs to strengthen the Libreville drinking water network.
This is indeed the financing of a project that aims to replace 150 kilometers of hydraulic pipeline to improve the water supply in several neighborhoods of the capital of Gabon. The project was announced this Wednesday, June 20 by Patrick Eyogo Edzang, the Gabonese Minister of Energy and Water.
In addition, the installation of a new water treatment plant with the support of the pan-African industrial group Eranove will be built for two years. The latter will have to produce 140,000 m3 of additional water per day.
It should be noted that Gabon is facing a strong urban expansion. Thus, Libreville is struggling to provide drinking water to all its inhabitants for several years now.
While several measures have been announced to replace shooting, the results are still waiting.
