Infrastructure – Water Management

Almost fifty percent of the developing world’s population – 2.5 billion people – lack improved sanitation facilities, and almost 1 billion people still use unsafe drinking water sources, and even those with access often receive unsafe and inadequate service. Infrastructure upgrade requirements on a global level for potable water management is ever increasing.

The Opportunity

In an infrastructure intensive sector, improving access and service quality to meet this goal cannot be done without massive investments. Around the developing world, the water sector appears chronically under-funded and inefficient. In this context, Public-private partnerships (PPPs) can be viewed as one of the tools (among others) available to governments for improving the performance and financial sustainability of the water sector.

  • Planning & Development: We seek experienced professionals able to develop operationally efficient and commercially optimized water management plans worldwide. We are building a network of expertise experienced in the infrastructure planning and development stage of water management projects.
  • Financing Options: We seek to add to our management consulting clearinghouse, consultants that are current with deal architecture involving all instruments for financing water management projects. This can include private sector involvement, ranging from concessions to BOT-type structures to outright privatization hydro generating and water utilities.
  • Program Management, Implementation and Delivery: We seek experienced program managers with a deep understanding of how cost effective potable water capacity is delivered within urban and rural environments.
