African organisations eligible for AWF grants are encouraged to submit to the African Water Facility their proposal for project(s) focused on the “preparation of climate resilient water resources development programmes and projects” aimed at building resilience to climate change in Africa for a chance to be selected for receiving non-reimbursable grants ranging in size from € 1 million up to € 3 million. Deadline for submission is November 14, 2014. For more information, visit: www.africanwaterfacility.org/en/callclimate/ or contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Projects prioritised

In its selection, the AWF will prioritise projects focused on the “preparation of climate resilient water resources development programmes and projects” that show strong climate and water adaptation and/or mitigation emphasis. Components focused on improving water governance in the context of climate change and on capturing and disseminating climate and water information and knowledge will be also considered.

Sub-sectors targeted

The sub-sectors supported include water resources infrastructure, water for agriculture, water for energy, water supply and sanitation, and water for environment, among others.
Support could be extended to include non-water infrastructure or natural resources, such as forestry, livestock, or a broader water-energy-land focus of interventions, where it is relevant to the overall water sector and related climate adaptation and mitigation measures.
This AWF initiative will receive special support from the Nordic Development Fund and the Austrian Development Agency , who will make use of their extensive knowledge and worldwide experience in sustainable development and climate change to assist with the implementation of the call.
