The Trans Africa Pipeline (TAP) is the first permanent solution to end devastating drought and increasing desertification across the Sahel region of northern Africa.
TAP is an 8,000 km. long freshwater pipeline which will provide clean, potable drinking water to 28-30 million people in 11 countries of the African Sahel.
The largest humanitarian civil engineering project of the 21st century, TAP will construct large-scale desalination plants on the west and east coasts of Africa, regional tank farms and pumping stations for water storage and distribution.
Using a combination of new solar technologies and wind turbines, TAP will be carbon-neutral, develop its own power sources, and pump approximately 400,000 cubic meters a day of clean, fresh water from each African coast across 11 Sahel countries.
The Trans Africa Pipeline Inc. is a not-for-profit organization working in collaboration with the 11-country Pan African Great Green Wall agency, with specific Sahel countries and with our U.S. charitable organization, the TAP Foundation U.S.
