The African Water Facility (AWF) awards grants of between €50,000 and €5,000,000 to water projects that need financial and technical help for implementation, or to meet the strict criteria expected by development partners and the global investment community.
The AWF’s strategic focus is in supporting Project Preparation, Water Governance and Water Knowledge projects designed to catalyse the development of the African water sector. Occasionally, the AWF also provides grants to fund the implementation of small-scale pilot projects.
The preparation of bankable projects entails rigorous planning and financial modelling before presentation for consideration by major investment bodies like development banks and government development agencies.
Along with its grants, the AWF also provides technical expertise and know-how to support project grantees all the way to project completion.
