DESCRIPTION

In the next decade huge amounts of capital investments will be needed to develop urban water infrastructures, globally.  In most regions, water systems are aging and becoming increasingly inefficient due to large backlog of rehabilitation investments. In others, recent water infrastructures are collapsing due to inadequate management practices. Climate change effects will also impose new investments. This session will discuss approaches for financing the infrastructure gap while enhancing water services sustainability, including new business models for wastewater recovery and reuse. Experiences from repayable financing, climate funds and blended finance and new requirements for engaging additional ODA will also be discussed.
