This report is the main output of a joint OECD Development Assistance Committee and Environmental Policy Committee Task Team, and follows-up on a joint meeting of OECD Environment and Development Ministers (2006). The report also feeds into the Synthesis Report of the OECD Horizontal Water Project, which has been launched in the 5th World Water Forum in Istanbul (2009). It has benefited from significant input from OECD member countries and a number of partner countries in the developing world, who have contributed their experience to this work. The case studies provided to the Task Team cover the following countries: Armenia, Austria, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Ethiopia, France, Georgia, India, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, Moldova, Netherlands, Senegal, Spain, Turkey and Uganda. This report builds on other ones by bringing supply and demand for finance together and by advocating a policy dialogue on financing of water supply and sanitation (WSS) based on sound analysis of what infrastructure is needed and how it can be afforded. Its subject is strategic financial planning (SFP) for water supply and sanitation, specifically: why it is necessary; how it can support policy decisions; how it can be developed; what country experiences exist; and, what can be learnt from these experiences.
