Date of effectiveness: 11.2006
The WFPF mobilizes additional financial and knowledge resources from various development partners to support the Water Financing Program (WFP) implementation. Established in November 2006 with initial contributions targeted at $100 million, the Facility has since provided the WFP with additional financial resources and technical support for components of investment projects, technical assistance operations, knowledge management, and regional cooperation.
The WFPF's resources finance direct project support and program quality support. The WFPF finances activities designed to result in significantly more people in the Asia and Pacific region with access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation, higher productivity and efficiency of irrigation and drainage services, more people with reduced risk of flooding, and more river basins implementing integrated water resources management.
