ACP-EU Water Facility: €200 million call for proposals planned

The European Commission has announced phase two of the ACP-EU Water Facility, setting aside €200 million to help to tackle water and sanitation problems in the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries. It will launch a call for proposals at the beginning of 2010. Between 2004 and 2006, the Water Facility financed 175 proposals, contributing €414.5 million out of the total project costs of €788 million. European institutions have doubled their support to the water and sanitation sector since 2002 . They are also spending more on basic water supply and sanitation for the poor - up from 22% of the aid in 2007 to 37% in 2009, and relatively less on large water supply and sanitation systems. EU donors give on average €1 billion every year to the water and sanitation sector, according to EUWI, the EU Water Initiative.
