Water is unevenly distributed throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. ... Due to industrial and agricultural water pollution, insufficient sanitation and supply, and infrastructure issues, only a fraction of fresh water is available for human consumption.In uganda especially in the nothern, eastern, westnile and other regions the condition gets worse during dry seasons.Sub-Saharan Africa is the home to hundreds of millions of people who suffer from water scarcity issues [2]. The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that more than 40 percent of the global water-stressed population lives in Sub-Saharan Africa [3]. In this region, only an estimated 44 percent of the urban population and 24 percent of the rural population have adequate sanitation [4]. What causes water scarcity in Uganda and Africa at large;

Urbanization
