2023 – A year rich in expertise, partnership and new solutions
The year ends in a beautiful way; before committing to 2024, we want to share our successes.
1 Our portfolio has been consolidated on the continent and the expertise of our core business has once again been confirmed. Thanks to the flagship project called “TA HUB”, the Firm is slowly but surely entering English-speaking countries. Gabon has opened up to our countries of intervention and we are delighted.
We note with great satisfaction that the States of the majority of countries are committed to achieving the SDG6 objective by prioritizing both access to a standard installation and the treatment of wastewater and sludge produced. Great progress for urban and rural populations and stakeholders.
2 Cabinet EDE has consolidated and expanded its partnership network with:
The main engineering schools in West Africa and France
An industry specialized in the development of plastic products
The Department of the Environment and Classified Establishments in Senegal
The African Water and Sanitation Association – AFWASA
