NEEDS Preparation Structuring Financing Project finance cycle

Project preparation: 

Project preparation One of the major obstacles to water and sanitation finance is project preparation Low institutional capacity A local affair, sometimes removed from decision making centers Difficult political and economic conditions Scarcity of financial resources: users, taxpayers, markets Project preparation not given the key role

Project preparation: 

Project preparation Donors and multilaterals financial institutions must emphasize support for the early stage. We at the IDB hope to approve on Monday a Project Preparation Fund with grants for capacity building and project preparation Donors should consider 'debt for water swaps' as part of their official assistance. Both would leverage other funds: 'teach them how to fish instead of giving them fish'

Project structuring: 

Project structuring Financial structures adapted to local realities Exploit all possibilities to maximize synergies between scarce resources: own labor, tariffs, donors, multilaterals, public and private resources At one extreme, cooperatives, water microenterprises, municipal utilities In the middle, management contracts, for operation, maintenance, collections, etc. At the other extreme, full-fledged concessions
