This guide is a non-technical introduction to finance for water infrastructure and services. It is relevant to countries at various levels of development and complements earlier reports of the EUWI Finance Working Group and programmes of the Global Water Partnership and World Water Council. The policy context is the target of the Millennium Development Goals: “by 2015, to reduce by half the world’s population without access to safe water and sanitation.” Target readers for the Guide are practitioners in developing countries – politicians, officials, professionals, private business people, members of civil society organisations and laypersons who are involved in different ways in providing water infrastructure and services. It tries to reflect the viewpoint of administrations that have the actual responsibility for investment and services, which increasingly are at a sub-sovereign, decentralised level. (Link)
