Investment Facility

The Project Preparation Platform was established in 2018 to provide a structured resource for African countries to access continued strategic and technical support in the prioritisation and preparation of climate resilient water projects for financing by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and other climate funds.

The Project Preparation Platform:

  • Supports countries to understand specific standards and procedural requirements in accessing finance from the GCF and other climate funds
  • Offers a facilitated, flexible mechanism that enables demand-driven technical assistance for national Direct Access Entities (DEAs), National Designated Authorities (NDAs), and national water agencies and ministries.
  • Supports countries in documenting and exchanging lessons learned in the preparation and financing of climate resilient water projects.

The Project Preparation Platform works towards the goals of the Continental Africa Water Investment Programme (AIP).

The Platform is hosted by the AIP Secretariat, at the Global Water Partnership Africa Coordination Unit. To read more about the Project Preparation Platform, click here to visit the AIP website.
