ACORN - Access to Capital, Oversight and Reporting Nexus


ROCKBlue's ACORN initiative works to help water utilities in developing countries to tap into much-needed capital with the goal of improving their financial and operational performance, and ability to serve their communities.

Access to Clean Water and Sanitation

Access to Capital, Oversight and Reporting Nexus

The first initiative of its kind, ACORN promotes sustainable private-sector finance of urban water utilities in developing countries. Our pilot projects at Lusaka Water Supply & Sanitation Co. (LWSC) in Zambia and Lilongwe Water Board (LWB) in Malawi will serve as models across Africa and around the world.

ACORN is key to a Water-Secure Future

The Power of Capital

ACORN helps water utilities develop solutions and execute strategies that maximize their potential to access funding.

We work to strengthen the capacity of water service providers (WSPs) by working directly with their management teams to promote:

  • Governance
  • Operational Performance
  • Creditworthiness
  • Financial Management
  • Investment Planning
  • Access to Commercial Finance
