The African WASH Ministers’ Guide to Finance

This guide, produced by the USAID Water for Africa through Leadership and Institutional Support (WALIS) program and the African Ministers Council on Water (AMCOW) 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. 

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 mobilization of much needed domestic financial resources.
