Tunisia raises drinking water prices by up to 16%

Tunis: Africas, Reuters

Tunisia has raised drinking water tariffs by up to 16%, the official gazette reported yesterday, in reaction to a five-year drought.

After years of drought, average rainfall has increased in recent months, but government officials reported this week that Tunisian dams are only at 35% of their stock capacity.

Last year, the North African country implemented a drinking water quota system and banned its use in agriculture. Since last summer, it has begun shutting down water supplies at night.
