The five countries where we operate — Lesotho, Mali, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia — are characterised by increasing urban migration and rapid urbanisation. Local policy-makers and authorities face an enormous challenge: to provide all citizens with adequate sanitation systems. Those living in low-income unplanned communities are particularly affected.
BORDA LA works actively in Mexico, Cuba and Nicaragua and maintains collaborations with different institutions in other countries in the region. As in many other areas of the world, water and sanitation services in Latin America and the Caribbean present great deficiencies.
BORDA South Asia operates in four countries: India, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal with its regional office located in Bangalore, India.
The phenomenal urban population growth in South Asia is not supported by proportionate infrastructure development. Local policy-makers and authorities face an enormous challenge: to provide all citizens with adequate, affordable and sustainable sanitation systems. Flexible, decentralised systems are needed to protect the environment and the health and dignity of local residents.
BORDA Southeast Asia (SEA) and its professional local partner organisations are active in six countries: Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
Cities and towns across Southeast Asia are developing extremely dynamically. Many municipalities face significant challenges: the rapid growth of unplanned settlements, demographic and technological change, climate change, new patterns of consumption and social inequalities. Meeting these challenges requires new approaches to providing essential public services, creating liveable and inclusive public space and adequately managing natural resources.
BORDA WesCA operates in Iraq, Jordan, and Tajikistan, with its regional office in Amman, Jordan.
According to the World Bank, globally over 2 billion people do not have access to improved sanitation. Our goal is to improve the living conditions of these socially disadvantaged groups by creating and facilitating access to basic needs services such as energy supply, sanitation, wastewater management, and water provision while maintaining a safe environment.
