PER - Water Services Delivery Chain
Although significant progress has been made in providing water to households and communities who had no access to these services before 1994, sizeable backlogs remain. According to the 2011 census, 2.2 million households still lack access to the RDP-standard water supply, and over 5 million households (or 33%) experience problems with their supply. Growth in sectors such as agriculture, mining and energy also depends heavily on reliable access to water.
