Water supply and sanitation coverage in Africa
Delphine Digout, based on a sketch by Philippe Rekacewicz; UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The water supply situation in Africa is already precarious, and climate change is expected to exacerbate the problem. This graphic shows the amount of water supply coverage at the national level for Africa, and the amount of sanitation coverage, as a percentage, at the national level for Africa. Statistics are shown for rural areas, for urban areas, and for all areas.
