International Secretariat for Water (ISW) / Solidarity Water Europe (SWE): Butterfly Effect

Local level actors and small scale water and sanitation operators are increasingly viewed as an indispensable and valuable players in the rapidly expanding urban and abandoned rural areas spread in all development settings whereas their mutual collaboration is growing. However, being limited in an access to sustainable financing, the scope of their action rarely sufficiently reflects the required financial efficiency and durability of water and sanitation supply. Many local, regional and national governments and development agencies have introduced various decentralized programs to extend the reach and offer of the commercial finance or other financing solutions to local level stakeholders both, public and private. These efforts gave mixed results. Given the circumstances this session will focus on the innovative financing and economic approaches aimed to enhance access to water and sanitation services. A wide range of different institutional perspectives and practices will be offered to the audience seeking to trigger a broader discussion and a replication of the best practices.

This session will guide the audience through cases and successful lessons, which illustrate the growing importance of local level water and sanitation actors and operators.

This panel intends to raise the global interest and replication of the innovative financing solutions in water and sanitation at the local level. It will seek a joint endorsement of the need for a more coherent and result and volume driven decentralized cooperation in water and sanitation sector.
