Water financing

    Water financing


    Increasing population and living standards, climate change, ageing infrastructure, among others, are putting more and more pressure on water resources.

    In order to ensure or improve overall access to water and sanitation and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, there is a need for increased investment in the water sector.

    The World Water Council has long been committed to finding innovative and concrete solutions to financing problems. In particular, it is working to convince the various donors and funders to devote more financial resources to investments in the water sector, and to bring financial institutions closer to the water community. 


    Strategic actions

    • Develop information tools on opportunities and methods to access financial markets, including innovative financing
    • Increase the visibility of water in economic and financial discussions.  
    • Develop collaborative platforms to encourage the participation of companies and investors.
