An extensive water services programme supported by political commitment and resources has enabled South Africa to achieve its MDG target (of halving the water backlog by 2015) in 2005, and to now chase universal access to water services by 2014.

The programme was initiated by the Department for Water Affairs with the core delivery taking place via local municipalities. A national priority reflected in the country’s Constitution, the programme has now been revised and extended to address critical current issues such as service levels, schemes viability, urbanisation and informal settlements.
