Our 2030 Impact Targets

The AIP seeks to double current water and sanitation investments by 2030 to close Africa’s water investment gap and contribute to Sustainable Development Goal 6 targets. The water investment gap stands at between US$11-US$20 billion/year according to African Ministers’ Council on Water estimates.

The outcomes of the AIP demonstrate the interlinked and interdependent nature of water investments on social and economic outcomes.

Increased water investments result in improved economic and job opportunities, cooperation and peace, climate resilience among vulnerable communities, reduced incidences of water borne diseases including prevention of the spread of Covid-19, the protection of fragile ecosystems, as well as the reduction in migration and the displacement of communities.
