DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-60]

DESCRIPTION

Market mechanisms are important to ensure financial sustainability but can exclude those that have less; tariffs need to be sustainable, affordable and also promote conservation of water resources as an economic and social good. It demands comprehensive understanding of national and regional economic and financial conditions to allow or discourage such mechanisms. At the country level, sustainable water-economic reforms need to be identified. This session aims to identify experiences and proposals to boost inclusive market-based mechanisms, as well as sustainable country level water-economic reforms, that could enable more access to water, for multiple purposes, and to sanitation.
