A growing need for Alternative Service Delivery.

The effective management of a water value chain is necessary for the economic and social well-being of countries. Strong water management, able to leverage a broad range of alternative service delivery and procurement options, leads to improved water security with significant positive impacts on economic growth and sustainable development.

Through improved partnership management and compliance monitoring, utilities can leapfrog significant technology, funding, and service delivery challenges and gaps that have developed over a number of years.
