The new Business Plan (2019-2023) has introduced a number of significant structural changes to NamWater. The most significant structural changes are the introduction of a matrix system, which created the positions of Chiefs, Heads and Managers. The significant change was the demarcation of NamWater into Five Business Units. These are;

  • Business Unit North-West
  • Business Unit North-East
  • Business Unit South
  • Business Unit Central
  • Business Unit Coastal

Each of these Business Unit is now headed by a Chief Water Supply instead of a General Manager, who had overall responsible for water supply in Namibia. Each Chief resides in his or her Business Unit. Operations are de-centralized to each Business Unit.

Furthermore, other Chiefs include;

  • Chief Strategy and Business Development
  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Chief Retail Business
