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.
The Confederation of Danish Industry and the Danish Embassies in Latin America have joined forces to organize a series of activities on the topic of water in Latin America.
This webinar focuses on the opportunities for Danish companies in the Peruvian water sector, including sanitary water, waste water and sewage systems.
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% of the population – mostly in rural areas – do not have access to clean drinking water and of those 90% who have access to water, 20% consume water with inadequate chlorination levels. In the area of sanitation, only 72% of the country’s population (88% in urban areas and only 16% in rural areas) have access to sanitation facilities. In order to revert this situation, the Peruvian government adopted a General Law on Water in 2010 and set up a number of initiatives to promote access to clean water.
In this webinar, the Director of OTASS - the technical entity administrating sanitation services throughout the country – will give a thorough insight into the Peruvian water and sanitation sectors, with the aim of building business opportunities both for newcomers and companies present already on the market.
Furthermore, Proinversión – the Peruvian agency working on attracting foreign investment – will present large scale infrastructure projects in the wastewater and sewage systems sector currently being planned and opened for bidding by Proinversión.
