The city of Djibouti is home to 75 % of the total population of the eponymous country. Increasing urbanization has led to the explosion of the Balbala district.
The result is a disorganized urban fabric, where water and sanitation networks are almost non-existent. Its disadvantaged population thus lives in a harmful environment, where solid waste mixes with liquid waste, on the doorstep. The health risks are significant: lack of sanitation is the main cause of diarrhoeal diseases.
This is why the Djibouti National Water and Sanitation Office has embarked on a major sanitation program. Its objective: to set up a wastewater collection system, up to the treatment plant. To build this network, ONEAD has received financial support of € 12M from the European Union, whose management has been delegated to AFD.
