Infrastructure Finance, Development, Operation, and Maintenance

Overview

Providing financial support, technical expertise, or any other assistance to the development of water-related infrastructure (e.g., augmenting distribution systems, increasing water storage and treatment capacity, promoting maintenance capability for long term service delivery), including "green infrastructure" and Point of Use/Point of Treatment solutions.

Effective infrastructure is an important factor contributing to sustainable service delivery needs in water supply, and its quantity, quality, and availability. Water infrastructure serves not only to supply water, but also to establish water treatment facilities and measures to mitigate flood and other risks. The development and design of water infrastructure has implications on water distribution, access to water services, price, and water quality.
