The Africa Urban Sanitation Investment Fund (AUSIF) - 2018 to 2022 African Development Bank (AfDB) / African Water Facility

Here is a new project that I recently added to the SuSanA project database. It could be of relevance for anyone doing urban sanitation work in Africa. It is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Africa Urban Sanitation Investment Fund (AUSIF)
2018 - 2022 • African Development Bank (AfDB) / African Water Facility

The Programme officially launched June 4, 2018. The size of the grant is USD 14,500,000.


Purpose:

To significantly mobilise the financial resources and to develop a pipeline of investment projects that will support the African countries to meet the SDG targets in urban sanitation


Activities:

The project will promote the adaptation and much wider application of tested approaches as well as support fine-tuning developed business innovations leading to robust affordable and financially and environmentally sustainable sanitation services for urban inhabitants in sub-Saharan Africa, with a focus on the urban poor. The project will directly target 2 million urban dwellers and indirectly target another 6 million through the implementation of the prepared sub-projects. The project has 4 main components that are well aligned with the AWF 2017 – 2022 Strategy: (i) Establishment of an Africa Urban Sanitation Investment Fund (AUSIF) (ii) Investment Project Preparation: (iii) Catalytic Investments; and (iv) Investment Promotion.


Objectives:

The objectives are the following (i) Establishing the Africa Urban Sanitation Investment Fund (AUSIF) (ii) Develop a pipeline of Investment Projects: (iii) Promote Catalytic Investments that can attract additional funding from Private sector and other Partners and Governments; and (iv) Promoting Investment to mobilise more funding for the sector.
