IFC is a leading investor in the water sector, with extensive experience in preparing, structuring, and financing complex projects in emerging markets.
Since 1994, IFC has committed and mobilized more than $3 billion in water projects around the world. We provide investment and advisory services, partnering with public and private sector stakeholders to support the development of water and wastewater infrastructure.
IFC’s products and services include a variety of financing options, along with expert advice to meet client and project needs. We provide and mobilize tailor-made financing options and advisory services to cities and utilities. We also provide public-private partnerships (PPPs) advisory and project development advisory to address market gaps and client issues that prevent project launch.
Drawing from in-house expertise, we offer guidance on engineering, social and environmental standards, risk management, and other critical issues throughout the project cycle. We bring additional value with our extensive knowledge of local markets, innovative technologies, and a successful track record of undertaking regulatory and market reforms.
