WATER

Securing safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene 

In a recent report published by the World Resource Institute, the Global Commission with more than 200 experts finds that bold climate action could deliver at least $26 trillion in economic benefits through 2030, highlighting the global shift for a low- carbon economy, in which one of the main drivers for this shift to be actioned, is the water industry.

Securing safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene for all in sub-Saharan Africa would require $35 billion per year in capital costs. This highlights the growing need in investing in better water management and infrastructure.

With a significant funding gap needing to be bridged to invest in better water management and infrastructure, strong and active partnerships between the private sector and municipal governments are needed to respond to the growing demand for water services.

  • Be presented with an interactive workshop style training, centered around making use of Public-Private Partnerships as an alternative procurement methodology.
  • Exploring opportunities in a circular economy
  • Hear global responses to water scarcity
