latest webinar: Making Blended Finance Work for Water and Sanitation

On Monday 9 September, our team of experts discussed the key findings of this report during a live webinar. The video recording of this webinar is forthcoming.

Water-related investments are a prerequisite to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals, yet financing persistently falls well short of investment needs. A new OECD report Making Blended Finance Work for Water and Sanitation: Unlocking Commercial Finance for SDG 6 shows how blended finance can play an important role to deploy development finance more strategically to mobilise additional commercial finance.

GTL Blended finance

This report takes a commercial investment perspective on water-related investment and provides insights into three subsectors:

(1) water and sanitation utilities

(2) small-scale off-grid sanitation and

(3) multi-purpose water infrastructure and landscape-based approaches.

Where has blended finance worked so far? How can this experience be adapted to new contexts and investment types? How can well-designed policies strengthen the enabling environment to crowd-in commercial capital and strengthen the financing systems upon which water-related investments rely?
