A Decade of Improving Lives and Conserving Ecosystems

A decade ago, The Coca-Cola Company and its Foundations and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) came together in a unique partnership to help address the world’s growing water and environmental challenges.

From Africa to Asia, the Water and Development Alliance (WADA) has helped place communities around the world on a path toward a more water-secure and environmentally sustainable future. WADA capitalizes on the organizational strengths and priorities of both partners. The partnership draws upon USAID’s expertise on the productive use of water through Feed the Future, the U.S. Government’s global hunger and food security initiative, and benefits from the Agency’s experience strengthening health outcomes through improved WASH provision under the Senator Paul Simon Water for the World Act, while also benefitting from The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation’s experience in sustainable WASH provision through its Replenish Africa Initiative.
