World Bank Group’s “Water Blog”: Achieving universal access to water and sanitation by 2030 — how can blended finance help?
Joel Kolker, lead water and sanitation specialist at the World Bank, and Sophie Trémolet, senior economist in the World Bank Water Global Practice, discuss the role of “blended financing” — using financing from commercial sources as well as government and donor funding — to improve universal access to water and sanitation. The authors highlight nine case studies that examine how blended financing has been used to address constraints and facilitate access to water and sanitation in developing countries (8/29).
