Since the mid 1980s water supply in the Governorate of Kafr El Sheikh has been gradually improved with the support of German Development Cooperation through the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). In order to counter the combined increase of wastewater quantity and health risks, central wastewater systems have been implemented in cities and towns in the last decade. However, only about 30 % of the total population will be connected to these systems because most of the people are living in small communities. Although these communities are facing significant problems related to poor sanitation, adequate solutions to serve the needs of villages have not been available.
