The Government of Seychelles is driving forward on an integrated water resources management strategy that relies on energy efficiency, demand management, and developing alternative supply sources from rainwater harvesting and water reuse.
Seychelles, a small island nation in the Indian Ocean, recognises the importance of investing in its water future. The developing nation is facing increasing pressure on its limited water resources due to many factors including a growing population, demographic change, increasing wealth, and the impacts of climate change. An unfavorable topography and limited opportunities for traditional storage solutions add to the challenges, as does the fact that only 20 percent of the Seychelles population is connected to the centralised sewerage system.
