Typology of Water Infrastructure Projects

    Water infrastructure projects could be made more ‘bankable’ by improving how their investment case is made. To reduce the information asymmetries that exist between projects and finance, a typology of water projects is proposed. Through an outcomes-based approach to evaluate risk and return, the framework draws on models that are increasingly being used to measure progress against the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A classification that is adaptive to the varying expectations of project investors, based on the scope, system, structure, security and sustainability of different projects is presented.
