WATER AND SANITaTION: WHY AND HOW TO INVEST

WHY AND HOW TO INVEST

Understand the context of water and sanitation

Safe water and adequate sanitation are vital for health, hygiene and development. Water is a scarce resource required by growing populations, industry, agriculture and energy, but it is easily misused or contaminated. Investing in water and sanitation helps to protect nature resources, underpins community health, safety and dignity, and supports the growing needs of economies.  

Potential models of intervention

Several models of intervention for water and sanitation are used in development. These include building and maintaining infrastructure, water conservation, wastewater management, reducing pollution, clearing alien vegetation, supporting social enterprises, integrated resource management and educating the population about water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Companies and organisations work to find new ways to use water more efficiently and roll out potentially lucrative sanitation projects.
