Impact

By 2030, AIP is expected to leverage and influence $30 billion in climate resilience SDG 6 water investments and create at least 5 million jobs.

The impact of the AIP demonstrates 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, the protection of fragile ecosystems, reduction in migration and the displacement of communities.
