"The RWSSI Trust Fund responds to the need to build resilience in the affected-countries through sustainable improvement of water and sanitation for the most vulnerable segments of population," said Mohamed El Azizi, Director of the AfDB Water and Sanitation Department.
These funds are in addition to a $20 million contribution to the RWSSI from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, announced in November 2011.
This was followed by the adoption of the RWSSI and AWF Declaration whereby some 300 participants, including African water and finance ministers, development partners and civil society representatives, reconfirmed their overall commitment to mobilise the required resources and make all necessary efforts to improve water resources management as well as to achieve the Millennium Development Goal targets for water supply and sanitation on the continent.
In some of these countries RWSSI operations have been highly successful and as such other operations have been launched (Mali I and Mali II, Niger I and Niger II...).
In the past eight years, more than eight RWSSI operations have been funded by the Bank in the Sahel, mainly in Burkina Faso, Niger, Mali, Senegal and Chad in order to provide increased access to drinking water and sanitation services to improve the livelihood of the populations.
