Water for African Cities - Mali
The agglomeration of Bamako, the capital of Mali is made up of an administrative district of six communes and different outskirts. The growth of the city of Bamako is very typical of a rapid urbanization in Mali. Today the population of Bamako is estimated to be about 1 500 000 inhabitants. Disadvantaged areas hosting more than 40% of the population of the city are mainly characterized by absence of modern infrastructures (water, sanitation). The high demographic growth, the concentration of the population and industrial activities has led to progressive pollution of water resources. Sector-based policies and strategies in the water sector have been reviewed and strengthened these past years including a decentralization process that has resulted in a reorganization of the water sector.
