Sanitation and Wastewater Atlas of Africa - Wastewater Streams

Population growth, urbanization and economic activities have resulted in an increase in wastewater volumes across the world, with this trend expected to continue (Sato et al. 2013), including in Africa, which has experienced the highest population growth rate in the world of 2.51 per cent during the period 2000–2015 (United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs [UNDESA] 2019). The wastewater streams responsible for the bulk of water pollution in Africa can be classified as municipal wastewater, agricultural wastewater, industrial wastewater, urban storm water run-off and hospital wastewater (Wang et al. 2014; Laffite 2016).
