Water Window Challenge

The Water Window focused on building resilience to flood-related issues. It comprised 11 grantees that implemented 12 projects: six in Southeast Asia, five in South Asia, and one in sub-Saharan Africa. More than 500,000 people have been supported through these projects to strengthen their resilience to floods. The Water Window was funded by the Z Zurich Foundation.
