Invest in water and sanitation - Aqua for All

Increase your impact by investing in the water and sanitation economy

Impact investments for water and sanitation

Maximise your impact, reduce the risk

There’s a huge service and financial gap in the water and sanitation economy.

Achieving SDG 6 – Water and sanitation for all – requires an estimated $114 billion per year. However, less than $5 billion in donor money is available. Likewise, impact investments are not enough, despite the opportunities in the field of financial and social return.

Aqua for All uses its funds to bridge this financial gap by unlocking public and private capital. As a result, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) can continue to provide affordable services to low-income and rural households.

By partnering with Aqua for All, you can:

  • Maximise your impact. We develop and identify viable solutions and SMEs with a social purpose that require debt, equity or patient capital.
  • De-risk your investments. We participate in the form of co-investments, guarantees, technical assistance, first and second loss capital, etc.
  • Have access to our partnerships and networks of key private and public stakeholders and private investors.

We look forward to exploring new ventures and developing innovative solutions for water and sanitation investments.
