Africa is the first focal point as a case study to introduce concepts of water Justice. This is a continent where access to water has been made difficult for predominantly social, economic, and geographic reasons. Africa best highlights the obvious inequities and water injustice we must confront. From urban centres like Cape Town to arid rural land in Botswana and developing infrastructure in Nigeria, Africa’s water scarcity is reaching dangerously unprecedented levels. Kat and Tim have conducted interviews with a range of experts to explore the unique systems and their failings throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
