This study on Urban Wastewater PPPs, prepared by FICCI Water Mission and the 2030 Water Resources Group (2030 WRG), with knowledge partner Powertec Engineering, aims to provide the industry perspective on issues affecting PPP projects in the urban wastewater sector and suggests measures to improve the investment climate for these projects and enhance reuse of treated wastewater. This study is the outcome of extensive stakeholder consultation with industry participants through formal interviews, consultative workshops and surveys supplemented by extensive desk research involving review of existing reports on the domestic sewerage sector as well as international and Indian PPP case studies of projects in this sector.
The 2030 Water Resources Group is a unique public-private-civil society collaboration. We facilitate open, trust-based dialogue processes to drive action on water resources reform in water stressed countries in developing economies. The ultimate aim of such reforms and actions is to close the gap between water demand and supply by the year 2030.
Our global partners include bilateral agencies and governments (Sida, SDC and the Government of Hungary), private companies (Nestlé, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Grundfos, Dow, Ab InBev), development banks (IFC, the World Bank, African Development Bank, Inter-American Development Bank), INGOs and IGPs (UNDP, GGGI, GWP, the Forum, BRAC and IUCN). The 2030 WRG was launched in 2008 at the World Economic Forum and has been hosted by The World Bank Group since 2012.
