Water & Sanitation PPPs

Water PPP 1.jpg


 

Almost fifty percent of the developing world’s population - 2.5 billion people – lack improved sanitation facilities, and almost 1 billion people still use unsafe drinking water sources, and even those with access often receive unsafe and inadequate service. Sustainable Development Goal 6 on Clean Water and Sanitation, by 2030, sets tough targets:

  • 6.1 achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all
  • 6.2 achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all
  • 6.4 substantially increase water-use efficiency across all sectors.

 

In an infrastructure-intensive sector, improving access and service quality to meet the SDGs cannot be done without massive investments. Around the developing world, the water sector appears chronically under-funded and inefficient. In this context, Public-private partnerships (PPPs) can be viewed as one of the tools (among others) available to governments for improving the performance and financial sustainability of the water sector.
