Against the background of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals “to halve by 2015 the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and sanitation”, the major restraint in achieving these goals and delivering projects is lack of funding.

Biwater has played a key role in developing and promoting a comprehensive and inclusive financing capability that has resulted in significant projects being delivered. Our international reputation enables us to access a wide range of financiers including commercial banks, donor agencies, export credit agencies, development banks and bi-lateral and multi-lateral institutions.

In recognition of the enormous contribution Biwater has made to delivering the Millennium Development Goals for improved water and wastewater supply, we have been given two awards for the Omdurman project, the 2008 Trade Finance Project of the Year and the 2009 Global Water Award for Sustainability.
