ABSTRACT/PREAMBLE

The Namibia Water Corporation Limited has announced a 17% average Water Tariffs
increase which is inline with its promise of not to increase water tariffs by more than
20% over a period of 5 years.
The announced tariff increase is a result of the new Bulk Water TariffPolicy. The existing
Bulk Water Tariff Policy that calls for an Area Based Cross-subsidisation did not support
NamWater's national objective of providing affordable water to the entire nation nor did
it support NamWater's national infrastructure development objectives.
