USAID & Japan International Cooperation Agency Agreed to Work Together on Water Projects in Africa

On 12 March 2012 the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) announced a new partnership to promote water development in sub-Saharan Africa.  The focus of this collaboration will be to jointly cooperate on short-term projects that may result in longer-term investments.

This partnership builds on similar projects that have all ready resulted in new reforms and private investments in the water sector in the Philippines and Vietnam.  JICA has committed to the creation of a multi-million dollar Africa Water Investment Fund.  This new USAID-JICA partnership will complement that goal.
