Easel 27: Access to safe drinking water in rural, urban, and agricultural regions of Ouest, Cameroon

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The region of Ouest, Cameroon region lags behind the national levels of per capita access to improved water sources, and residents face environmental and infrastructural impediments to attaining safe and accessible drinking water. Various contaminants measured in a 2015 field study affect the agricultural region, village, and city in different ways causing 1) degraded drinking water quality; 2) point source and source pollutants; 3) a deficit in sewage customs and infrastructure; and 4) stagnant water as a health hazard. Spatial analysis of these water quality data spatially suggests various solutions for these four issues. Different proposals will be developed based on models for different environmental management strategies.
