The Assembly of the African Union Heads of State and Government adopted the Continental Africa Water Investment Programme (AIP) as part of Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa – Priority Action Plan 2 (PIDA-PAP 2) during the 34th ordinary session of African Union summit on 7 February 2021.
The goal of the AIP is to mobilise US$30billion in climate-resilient water investments by 2030 and create 5 million jobs. The objective of the AIP is to enhance job creation through gender sensitive investments in water security, industrialisation, and climate resilient development.
Delivery of water infrastructure in Africa is lagging behind the continent’s economic and social needs.
The AIP supports countries to develop and accelerate implementation of gender transformative climate resilient regional and national water investment programmes and projects, and contributes towards continental efforts on universal access to safe water, sanitation hygiene and integration of water security in COVID-19 economic recovery plans.
