The Continental Africa Water Investment Programme (AIP) Regional Resource Mobilisation Strategies


In February 2019, in response to the call of the High-Level Panel on Water (HLPW) and recognising the critical water security challenge Africa faces and mounting investment needs, the Governing Council of the African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) adopted a Decision for the transformation of Africa’s water investment outlook through increased partnerships and the launch and implementation of an African Water Investment Programme (AIP).

The objective of the assignment is to lead the development of five AIP Regional Resource Mobilization Strategies that will be used to mobilise resources to support the implementation of AIP activities.

OneWorld is tasked with developing specific regionally relevant opportunities to align GWP and partners’ activities with funding and political opportunities which increase their chances of success and could generate greater impact.

These opportunities will be aligned with pan-African and regional priorities as defined by Economic Commissions, UN Agencies, bilateral and multilateral funding agencies and knowledge partners, among other relevant bodies. They will also explore the private sector in contributing to the resource mobilisation objectives.
