Donor Programme: DGIS - UNESCO-IHE Programmatic Coorperation II
VIA Water supports projects with innovative solutions for water problems facing cities in seven African countries: Benin, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda and South Sudan. Through the programme, these solutions can be brought to life: with financial support, but also with the help of the (online) learning community. The programme focuses on twelve pressing water needs in African cities, such as more and reliable water harvesting and storage, good quality data gathering, access to drinking water, coping with floods. VIA Water looks for social and supply-chain innovations rather than simply technological innovations. A learning community is the platform for knowledge exchange, while building up trust during face-to-face events.
