Transboundary Investments

With over 54 shared river basins in Africa, cooperation in the management and development of transboundary water resources is a key building block towards regional and economic integration. However, the pace of investment in transboundary water projects in Africa remains very slow hampering progress towards the continent’s economic growth aspirations and 2030 SDG targets.

The AIP Transboundary PIDA Water Investments Support Programme will accelerate the preparation and implementation of climate resilient and gender transformative PIDA Water and other priority transboundary water investments for job creation, industrialisation, and SDG implementation.

PIDA is the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa, a multi sector programme dedicated to facilitating continental integration in Africa through improved regional infrastructure. PIDA is a joint initiative of the African Union Commission, the New Partnership for Africa’s Development Planning and Coordination Agency, and the African Development Bank.

The AIP Transboundary PIDA Water Investments Support Programme works towards the goals of the Continental Africa Water Investment Programme (AIP).

The AIP Transboundary PIDA Water Investments Support Programme is executed by the Global Water Partnership, the African Union Development Agency -NEPAD, the African Development Bank, the African Ministers’ Council on Water, River Basin Organisations, and others.

The programme is implemented with technical support and backstopping from the AIP Secretariat hosted by Global Water Partnership Africa Coordination Unit.
