Managing Water for All - An OECD Perspective on Pricing and Financing

Policies related to water can be considered under two inter-related headings: providing water services, especially water supply and sanitation, and managing water resources. This report focuses on the economic foundation and financial basis for sustainable water service provision and the role of economic instruments in sound water resource management. A considerable effort has been made to base the analysis on recent experience in OECD and partner countries. This report examines practical ways to close the financial gap between the costs of providing water services with the sources of financing available, in both OECD and non-OECD countries. Closing this financial gap is a prerequisite for ensuring affordable water services for all segments of society. Tariffs have a special role to play in this, but need to remain affordable. This report examines some of the related governance and institutional issues.

OECD (James Winpenny)

Strategic Financial Planning for Water Supply and Sanitation

Providing water supply and sanitation (WSS) is a major business which needs to have a sound financial basis. The sums involved in operating and maintaining services and infrastructure, expanding their coverage and upgrading them to meet current social and environmental expectations, are huge. Yet most systems are underfunded, with dire consequences for WSS users, especially the poorest.

This report argues the vital importance of using national or regional strategic financial planning (SFP) for WSS services to give them a solid platform for achieving the aims (including the Millennium Development Goals) set by national and international communities.

This paper provides background information for development practitioners in the water and other infrastructure sectors. It outlines the major challenges related to financing the gap in global water infrastructure, including those systems that provide urban and rural water supply, and sanitation and irrigation services.
