Description

"Innovate 4 Water" : Unlocking capital to support the growth of small and medium scale WASH entrepreneurs in Zambia

4IP Group and Waterpreneurs are jointly organizing this market-place forum, in partnership with GIZ, Global Water Partnership and African Investments.

This forum is meant to connect with like-minded people and organizations and to share ideas and innovations on the solutions that we have that are addressing some of our greatest challenges in the water nexus sector. We believe these solutions are not only at the core of our planetary well-being but will together bring us closer to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Please feel free to fully leverage and use the “Innovate 4 Water” forum in Zambia as your own platform to advance the great work that you are doing in your area of work.


ABOUT "INNOVATE 4 WATER" LUSAKA

Zambia's recognition of the importance of the water and sanitation sector in its economic development and in the reduction of poverty is evidenced by the central role that water and sanitation is given in the Country's medium-term development plan, the Sixth National Development Plan (SNDP) (2010 - 2015) and the long-term plan, the National Vision 2030. Water supply and Sanitation is one of the seven sectors targeted for "priority expenditure" in the SNDP, alongside agriculture, health, education, infrastructure (roads) and public order and safety. It also contributes to the achievement of SDG of halving the proportion of people without access to safe water and sanitation by 2030.

In this context, in order to contribute to closing the visibility gap between entrepreneurs, investors and enablers in the “Water Nexus”, 4IP Group and Waterpreneurs are co-organizing the marketplace. This forum will offer a unique opportunity to present your activities and develop collaboration with a curated set of stakeholders in your ecosystem locally.

When: 19-20 June 2019

Venue: InterContinental Hotel, Lusaka, Zambia



This “Innovate 4 Water” marketplace forum in Lusaka will leverage the joint experience of 4IP Group and Waterpreneurs with its series «Innovate 4 Water». The past “Innovate 4 Water” forums (in Geneva, Nairobi, Zug, Abuja and Kisumu) were critical, medium size events and fundamentally different from typical conferences. Participants to “Innovate 4 Water” are curated in an effort to bring maximum value to each participant, attendance of the event is by invitation only. All participants are encouraged to be active through a series of short pitches, where they have the opportunity to present their activities to gain visibility and share knowledge with other sector stakeholders, to increase collaboration and business opportunities.

The forums are designed with the following objectives in mind:

  • Promote the transfer of innovative “Water Nexus” technologies and innovative business models in emerging markets and developing countries.

  • Facilitate connections for deal-making, by providing a platform for organisations such as governments, service / solutions providers (ie. social entrepreneurs, “Water Nexus” technology experts), investors, NGO’s, and corporations) to present their needs and/or current projects (impact funds, coalitions, innovative public/private models, new financial vehicles) to each other.

  • Strengthen local ecosystems by establishing meaningful relationships and sustainable collaborations between sector players to adopt commercially-sustainable innovations to combat the various threats (including the ones posed by climate change) in targeted, localised “Water Nexus” sectors.

Previous «Innovate 4 Water» forums have successfully delivered meaningful and localised impact and fulfilled the above objectives.

Local ecosystems around “Water Nexus” entrepreneurship have been reinforced.

New business partnerships between entrepreneurs / solutions providers, investors, utilities and other enablers have occurred.

And, there has been a transfer of knowledge and improved cross-sectoral collaboration in innovative “Water Nexus” technologies and innovative business models.
