Who is our client

FMO’s Client is the Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS), a not-for-profit organization working on sustainable and responsible water management. AWS will be hired as the consultant for this project, the ultimate beneficiaries are agribusinesses in Latin America.

Funding objective

The objective of the project is i) to support FMO’s clients and prospects and the wider sector in bringing their water management to a higher standard by funding knowledge transfer and certification on responsible water management and ii) gain visibility for FMO (and to a lesser extent Building Prospects (BP)) as the preferred local partner to invest in water and water management as it is one of the focus themes of FMO, specifically of the Agribusiness, Food and Water department.

Why we fund this project

Responsible water management is vital for many agri-businesses and a clear business risk. Lack of good water stewardship is a barrier to invest for funders. By hiring AWS to increase the knowledge on water management in the agri-sector in Latin America, these businesses will be able to gain much-needed knowledge, training and support.
