Water Alliance Latin America - Peru Webinar
Join the Peru Webinar on Thursday the 22nd of October. The session, which is a part of the Danish Water Alliance in Latin America, focusses on Peruvian water and sanitation sectors.
With its 32 million inhabitants, scattered around a vast surface of arid land, mountains and rainforest, Peru is facing challenges in urban and rural sanitary water. 10 per cent of the population, mostly in rural areas, do not have access to clean drinking water, and out of the 90 per cent, who have access to water, 20 per cent consume water with inadequate chlorination levels. In the area of sanitation, only 72 per cent of the country’s population (88 per cent in urban areas and only 16 per cent in rural areas) have access to sanitation facilities.
In order to retrieve the situation, the Peruvian government adopted a General Law on Water in 2010 and set up several initiatives to promote access to clean water. The webinar, dedicated to analysing the Peruvian market, will involve the National Programme on Urban Sanitation (PNSR) and the National Programme on Rural Sanitation (PNSU), both under the Ministry of Housing, Construction and Sanitation, as well as OTASS, the technical entity administrating sanitation services throughout the country. Based on presentations by these three institutions, the webinar participants will get a thorough insight into the Peruvian water and sanitation sectors, with the aim of building business opportunities both for newcomers and companies, already present on the market.
