Access to safe water in rural and urban areas in Zimbabwe

Year: 2013 Author: GRID-Arendal
Zimbabwe’s total annual renewable freshwater resources amount to 20 cubic km per year, and although the country experiences quality and dry season problems at present, continued pressure on the resource will lead to water stress by 2025 (Hirji et al. 2002). Poor infrastructure hampers access to water in most urban areas, and in the capital, Harare, and the second main city, Bulawayo, residents have gone without piped water for as long as two weeks during recent years (UNEP 2008). The figure shows access to safe water in rural and urban areas.
