Windhoek, Namibia


The goal of this project was to provide the Windhoek, Namibia Department of Infrastructure, Water and Technical Services with a set of recommendations that would help to reduce water consumption within the City's schools. Through our research we found the following sources of inefficiency: faulty infrastructure, vandalism, insufficient maintenance, inefficient use, and lack of water awareness and conservation education. Our recommendations include infrastructure improvements, maintenance expansion, vandalism prevention methods, water saving devices, and educational programs for both learners and administrators.
