  • It is important to put the status and the achievements of the AWF into context. Donors are calling for results as the Facility has now existed for 3 years. However, it was only in 2007 that the Facility became truly operational. Before that the few staff working on the Facility were setting up the frameworks surrounding the Facility. Project results may only be expected as of later in 2008 and mainly in 2009+.
