Our climate change mitigation and adaptation strategy
Launched in 2023, our climate policy’s ambition is to secure future water and sanitation service delivery and to contribute to scaling low carbon, climate resilient water and sanitation enterprises and infrastructure. The strategy guides how our programmes will become climate smart – considering greenhouse gas mitigation and adaptation to the impacts of climate change. The water and sanitation sector in our countries of operation have limited contributions to global GHG emissions but are heavily impacted by climate change. Therefore, our main focus is on climate adaptation and building resilience.
Aqua for All ensures WASH investments are climate smart: avoiding emissions, reducing risks and building resilience.
Aqua for All will:
- Mainstream climate risk, adaptation & mitigation impact assessments in all initiatives supported directly
- Support the design and implementation of adaptation & mitigation measures where needed
- Support our FI/Investor-partners in climate risk assessment and mitigation screening
- Reduce our own operational footprint.
