The Opportunity for PPP

The water sector is complex and sensitive, but major benefits can be brought by involvement of the private sector, and rewards gained. There is scope for technical and commercial flexibility; the difficulties are increasingly understood, and measures are increasingly available to share and limit risk.

The need - is evident

The requirements for success -are understood

The problems - can be turned into opportunities

Investment needs - can be controlled and sustainable

Finance and risk mitigation - are increasingly available

The opportunity - should be taken

Public Private Partnership in the provision of water and sanitation services in developing countries is growing.
