This guide provides an overview for African WASH ministers and their teams of essential finance-related concepts required to engage optimally with finance ministries, parliamentarians, financial institutions, and other high-level decision makers. It provides numerous links to additional resources and references. The main goal of this guide is to support strategies and approaches for African WASH ministers to raise additional finance for the sector, to make effective use of the limited available financial resources, and to improve the overall financial sustainability of WASH financing. It provides available evidence and data from diverse African countries that can be used to influence the mobilisation of much needed domestic financial resources.
Key takeaways include:
This guide is complementary to AMCOW's "The African Ministers' WASH Finance Brief", which provides more evidence to support the mobilisation of investment for the WASH sector.
