Financing water infrastructure in Africa

Working Paper Published: August 2015

SIWI is developing a programme addressing the infrastructure financing challenges that persistently militate against the public as well as private development of water infrastructure.

Summary

Key actions include developing institutional capacity for infrastructure planning by public water management authorities; and, where specific types of projects are viable such as those to reduce Non-Revenue Water, assisting in the development and promotion of financing facilities adapted to the project needs. SIWI seeks to collaborate with partners in the public as well as private sectors in pursuing this work and welcomes new and on-going initiatives to address the water infrastructure backlog in Africa.
