Access to clean water is often thought of as a right, however some of the world is in water poverty. In 2019 785 million people still lacked even a basic drinking water service.

Anamad is working with several countries that are offered Official Development Assistance support from the British government to develop their water supply infrastructure. Including in the valorisation of waste to treat polluted water and the physical treatment of drinking water to remove pesticides and organics, including bacteria and viruses.
By finding technologies in their home countries we are accessing products that are built from the ground up by end users, often using clever, sustainable methods to solve problems that are felt all over the world.
