World Water Day 2022

Groundwater - we do not see it but its impact is visible everywhere. Groundwater is highly important to human society and to biodiversity. Our drinking water and sanitation, our food supply and ecosystems – all these rely on groundwater.

Groundwater provides almost half of all the drinking water worldwide, about 40% of the water for irrigated agriculture and about 1/3 of the water supply required for industry. It sustains ecosystems, maintains the baseflow of rivers and prevents land subsidence and seawater intrusion. Groundwater is a key resource for the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda for 2030 (UN Water). At CES, the responsible use and protection of groundwater of groundwater is deeply embedded into our understanding of implementing sustainable water supply, wastewater and hydraulic engineering projects.

Water related projects are the core competence of CES. The following examples of our ongoing worldwide projects cover the complete water cycle:

  • Supply with groundwater to refugee settlement and host communities in Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan and Uganda
  • Improvement of water supply infrastructure in Laos, Mozambique and Saint Lucia
  • Water loss reduction in Peru, Moldova and Tanzania
  • Integrated Water Resource Management and irrigation in Armenia, Bolivia and Ecuador
  • Institutional strengthening of water and wastewater operators in Albania, Bolivia and Kenia  
  • Wastewater projects in Egypt, Somaliland, Vietnam and Zambia
  • Sludge Treatment in Ethiopia and Rwanda
