Research and development project CuveWaters: Information on small-scale groundwater desalination

On the occasion of the newspaper article of the Namibian Sun from the 28th of June 2016 ”Donated water plant broken for six years”, this press information aims to provide some facts regarding the points addressed in the article*.

In Northern Namibia water as a resource is under increasing pressure. To strengthen the potential of the Cuvelai-Etosha Basin’s water resources the Namibian-German research and development project “CuveWaters” contributed to an Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) between 2006 and 2015. The aim was to demonstrate solutions for a sustainable water supply and...[more]

Completion of the CuveWaters research and development project: Combining water supply, food security, energy recovery and capacity development for Namibia

After almost 10 years of research and development, the CuveWaters team headed by ISOE – Institute for Social-Ecological Research presented its results on integrated water resources management in Namibia. The complex supply system was implemented at different sites in the Cuvelai-Etosha Basin, whose population is heavily affected by climatic extremes such as flooding and persistent periods of drought. In collaboration with the Technische Universität Darmstadt, partners in the field and local Namibian partners, it was possible to develop and implement solutions to the problem of providing...[more]

Adapting to climate change using the example of Namibia: natural water sources in the driest regions on earth

Completion of the CuveWaters research and development project: Natural water sources have always been in short supply in Northern Namibia. It is becoming clear that water as a resource is going to come under increasing pressure from climate change. How can the population still be guaranteed a regular supply of drinking water? How can farm land be effectively irrigated or sewage disposed of safely? In the German-Namibian research and development project entitled CuveWaters, close collaboration between scientist/researchers, partners in the field, and the population itself has made it possible...[more]

Water for the dry season – Handing over the rainwater harvesting plants in Epyeshona

During the rainy season normally there is abundant rainwater available for irrigation purposes in northern Namibia. This rainwater can be harvested from different catchments and stored to be used during the dry season. With the different rainwater harvesting pilot plants in Epyeshona the German-Namibian project team from CuveWaters together with the local community has developed solutions for agricultural irrigation during the dry season. On 23 November, the rainwater harvesting plants in the Oshana region near Oshakati were officially handed over to the village community. The project...[more]

CuveWaters Technologies at the Roundtable and the IFAT Environmental Technology Forum Africa

On the 15th September 2015, the CuveWaters team came together with engineers and planners from Namibia to discuss the four technologies implemented as part of CuveWaters in northern Namibia: Rrain- and floodwater harvesting, groundwater desalination as well as sanitation and water reuse. The presentation of the technologies, that included important results and lessons learnt from their implementation and operation was followed by a fruitful exchange among the participants. The technologies offer new perspectives for small settlements in rural areas but also for fast-growing urban...[more]
