AWF Strategy 2017-2025

01/12/2016

As the African water sector’s primary instrument aimed at mobilising resources to bridge the huge investment gap, the AWF offers a unique value proposition to African governments and the development community: Since inception in 2006, AWF-funded projects have mobilised more than €1 billion in committed follow-on investments for the broader water sector, including water supply, sanitation, irrigation and hydropower. This represents a leverage ratio of 1:34. AWF’s track record, with 70% of projects prepared securing the financing needed for implementation, and governance interventions that have advanced integrated water resources management across the continent, offers an exceptional ability to deliver results and attract much-needed investments for water infrastructure and services. In recognition of its achievements and unique positioning, the AWF won the “Project Preparation Facility of the Year Award” at the 2015 Africa Investor CEO Infrastructure Investment Summit and Infrastructure Investment Awards.
