Partnership for agricultural water for Africa

Resource mobilization

Mobilizing resources is about mobilizing money, people and political will. AgWA aims to significantly increase and sustain the flow of funds towards AWM while enhancing the quality of interventions. The partnership will provide a platform to influence investments decisions and promote the allocation of more funds towards AWM.

Main activities within this component are:

  • Assist countries to develop or improve national AWM strategies.
  • Increase and mobilize capacity and funds for project formulation and facilitate access to financial support.
  • Mobilize private sector for project preparation and implementation.
  • More AWM projects wanted but ‘not more of the same’ – there is a clear demand from both donors and countries for more sustainable projects with well designed ‘soft’ components.
