Water Partnership Program

The Water Partnership Program (WPP) is a multi-donor trust fund established in 2009 supported by the governments of the Netherlands, the United Kingdom,  Denmark and Austria. The WPP enables the World Bank to bring innovation and leverage investment in water, to drive change in global policy dialogue and to strengthen the results of its projects. The WPP works at the nexus of water with food, energy, environment, and human development needs to help countries achieve climate-resilient and inclusive green growth.  WPP activities are supporting and influencing about $11.5 billion in Bank financing while support to water supply and sanitation lending benefits the lives of roughly 52 million people in 26 countries, 17 million of which are in Africa.
