The AIP Water Investment Scorecard will provide a review mechanism highlighting a country’s progress in promoting inclusive and integrated water investments and also ascertain a country’s readiness in meeting its investment needs to achieve SDG 6.

It will respond to the implementation of the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa Priority Action Plan (PIDA-PAP)2 and is aligned with the African Union (AU) Agenda 2063 and Africa Water Vision 2025.

The AIP Water Investment Scorecard will support the implementation of the Africa Water Investment Programme (AIP) which aims to leverage $30bn in investments towards water and sanitation.
