Devolution Trust Fund

The DTF was established by NWASCO (National Water Supply and Sanitation Council) under the Water Supply and Sanitation (WSS) Act No 28 of 1997 as an instrument to assist Commercial Utilities (CUs) to improve WSS services. The DTF was operationalized by Statutory Instruments and has been fully operational since 2003.

Since then the DTF has been a major partner to CUs in financing and implementation of projects that have led to improved access to satisfactory WSS services for many of the urban poor in Zambia.

Our Vision

To be a leading agent in Southern Africa in facilitating increased access to sustainable WSS service by formal providers in order to maximize the impact of development finance.

Mission Statement

To capacitate CUs and communities for effective WSS service delivery and economic development in order to improve the quality of life of the people in Zambia, especially of those living in low-income areas. Learn more>>
