The OECD work presented in this session builds on the OECD Principles for Private Sector Participation in Infrastructure launched in 2007 to provide practical guidance to governments and institutions on how to make the most of private sector participation in water and sanitation. It is part of a broader OECD horizontal project on Sustainable financing to ensure affordable access to water and sanitation that addresses the economic basis for sustainable water service provision and sound water management.
