The Water Finance Coalition is a unique coalition that gathers international and domestic public development banks and international financial institutions to bridge the financing gap for water and sanitation services.

 

At the moment the Coalition quarterly gathers 60+ institutions and is still growing. 

Let's accelerate change together.

Why Public Development Banks?

There are about 450 Public Development Banks around the world,
operating at sub-national, national, regional, international and multilateral levels.

 

The volume of activity of these institutions amounts to about US$ 2.3 trillion annually – a staggering 10 percent of the total amount invested in the world every year by all public and private sources combined.

Public Development Banks share three characteristics:

  • They enjoy independent legal status and financial autonomy.

  • They are controlled or supported by public entities most likely central or local governments.
  • They execute a public mandate, addressing market inconsistencies.

 

During the 2020 Finance in Common Summit, a call for action to public development banks for a Water Finance Coalition has been launched jointly by Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Development Bank of Latin America (CAF), the European Investment Bank (EIB), the World Bank and Sanitation and Water for All (SWA).

 

After the launch, in 2021, the Coalition started meeting quarterly and engaging in joint-studies and public events.

 

How did it all start?
