Transforming the investment outlook for water security and sustainable sanitation for a prosperous, peaceful and equitable Africa

Delivery of water infrastructure in Africa is lagging behind the continent’s economic and social needs.

The objective of the AIP is to enhance job creation through gender sensitive investments in water security, industrialisation, and climate resilient development.

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.
