Tshwane, South Africa

2012 challenge

Tshwane has a strong mission to increase service provision to its people, accelerate economic growth, build sustainable communities, and ensure sound governance in its affairs. The city asked the IBM team to advise on improving their water and sanitation. The team’s recommendations centered on achieving appropriate water access for all residents; establishing community awareness programs; creating strong linkages between water, energy, housing, health, transportation and the private sector; and leveraging real time water analytics to assist the city in their decision making as they continue to update their aging infrastructure. This work will support the city’s chapter of transformation to ensure all residents have water and sanitation services in a cost effective manner and that water loss is significantly reduced.
