The International Center for Water Economics and Governance in Africa (IWEGA) was established in May 2009 at the University Eduardo Mondlane in Maputo. Its mission is “to enhance the capacity of African researchers to conduct water economics and governance inquiry of relevance to African problems and increase the awareness of environmental and economic managers and policy makers about the role of water economics and governance for sustainable development”.

IWEGA evolved from a concept note developed by a consortium of three research and training institutions: The University Eduardo Mondlane (UEM), the Center for Environmental Economics and Policy in Africa (CEEPA) at the University of Pretoria, and the French Agricultural Research Center for International Development (CIRAD) – UMR G Eau.

IWEGA receives core funding from the Government of Mozambique, through the UEM, and from CIRAD. Seed funding is provided by the South African Department of Water Affairs (DWA).
