Accelerating the coverage of reliable access to safe and affordable water services

Ensuring access to sustainable high-quality water services that meet communities’ true needs will require a new approach and outlook on implementation. The Foundation will make investments in three inter-related focus areas: 1) advancing proven and promising solutions and models, 2) strengthening water governance and in-country systems, and 3) building and disseminating credible and actionable evidence. These three approaches will be applied in an integrated way within the countries where we work in sub-Saharan Africa. By doing so, we seek to accelerate the coverage of reliable access to safe and affordable water for households, health facilities and schools in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mali, Niger and Uganda.
