The French Development Agency (AFD) is providing a €12.5 million grant to the Gambian government. This financing is intended for the implementation of a drinking water supply project in the Greater Banjul area, the Gambian capital.

The grant agreement was signed on March 20, 2023, in advance of World Water Day, which was celebrated on March 22, 2023. The €12.5 million financing granted by the French Development Agency (AFD) will allow the implementation of the Greater Banjul Drinking Water Supply Project. The project, which will be launched shortly, aims to improve the supply of drinking water to nearly 900,000 people in the Gambian capital.
