Among the countries in southern Africa, Namibia is considered the driest. The capital city of Windhoek has a population of 288,500 with an annual net growth rate of 1.8 percent. This population growth has put considerable strain on the water supplies of the city and threatens to exhaust them. The goal of this project was to work with the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia to develop and recommend innovative improvements to the water demand management plan of Namibian cities.
