Facilitating water projects investment in Africa

The African Water Facility (AWF) provides grants and expert technical assistance to implement innovative water projects and raise investment for water projects throughout Africa

Since its inception, the AWF has been outstanding in providing grants for project preparation with measures to strengthen water governance and water knowledge management. Overall, the Facility's action is to support projects designed to increase water, energy and food security, enhance regional cooperation and promote socio-economic growth in Africa.

Under the 2017-2025 Strategy, the AWF will focus its activities and operations around three strategic priority areas, which together provide a comprehensive approach to project preparation that creates a favourable investment climate, develops sustainable infrastructure and promotes the financing of investments until they are completed
