Russia Water Report Q1 2015
The Russian water sector is going through a somewhat turbulent time, due mainly to the political unrestwithin the country. The government has had to place its focus on other areas such as the crisis with Ukraineand the unstable environment has meant investment from external sources has also dropped. However,growth is still forecast over the long term and once the country is more settled, the government willcontinue its development of all parts of the sector. The main area of interest is likely to be the market forwater equipment and technology as Russia looks to enlarge the range of its water network while reducingthe amount of wastage.
In 2011 Russia launched its Clean Water Programme. This scheme, set to run until 2017, aims tosignificantly improve drinking water quality in the country. This has become a major problem for Russiancitizens after years of government neglect to the water sector lead to barely drinkable water. It has beennoted by the chairman of the sub-committee on water resources, Georgii Karlov, that one third of the entirepopulation uses water that is not properly prepared for consumption. The Clean Water programme aims toaddress this situation by focussing on a widespread reform of the sector. The main goal of the programme,as stated in its name, is for the country to enjoy cleaner water in every aspect.
