WaSeNamM: Water Security for Namibian Municipalites

(WaSeNamM: Wasser-Sicherheit für Gemeinden in Namibia)

Incentivize local water management under an institutional set-up for professionalized O&M
Develop modular water reuse technologies under a bundled O&M concept for regional up-scale
Transfer research outcomes to the national level and for transboundary water resources management


This website provides further information on the project outline WaSeNamM
as well as links to the project partners and the documents noted in the footnotes of the project outline

11 Here fore, besides practical water reuse experiences from NamWater and the other project partners, the results from previous research projects
shall be used, many sponsored by BMBF (like EPoNa in Outapi NAM, iWaGSS with the Palabora Mining Co. ZA, IWRM MOSA, concept
for Groblersdale et. al. in ZA, AKIZ with brewery and fish industry in Can Tho VN, MPP multi-purpose ponds in Canterbury, Christchurch,
plus various other small pond systems in NZ) or sponsored under BMZ for municipal clients like the City of Windhoek with assignments for
the UJAMS and the Gammams wastewater plant, for POCA (chairmanship for the Panel of Contract Advisors) and more, see footnote 2 or as following (11a-11f)
