About

Description (description)

Established in 2018 in partnership with the Dutch government, the Water Sector Fund (WSF) aims to support the development of water projects in low- and lower-middle income countries. Water sector actors in target countries often face financial challenges and limited management capacity when building water sector infrastructure. With the help of donors, WSF seeks to address funding and capacity obstacles by supporting innovative water projects and integral water management systems. WSF currently finances technical assistance operations, although various other financial instruments can be deployed.

Sustainable Development Goals

Donor-financed operations make a direct contribution to several of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are some of the global goals targeted by our trust funds. Our collective actions unlock billions of euros in investment to combat climate change, eradicate poverty and fight inequality.
