Event Financing Water Project: opportunities and challenges

In the framework of the Team Europe Initiative, the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the EU Delegation to Egypt in partnership with the Agence Francaise de Developpement (AfD) and KfW development bank are pleased to organise the "Financing water projects; Challenges and Opportunities" seminar. The seminar is an opportunity for an exchange among water and finance experts on the importance of water projects financing. The investment needs of the Egyptian National Water Resources Plan (2017-2037) are very large. The roundtable will discuss issues linked to the implementation of the plan. The ministry of Housing and the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater play an important role in the implementation of the planned projects in the water, sanitation and desalination subsectors. European and International financial institutions support the implementation of the plan by providing part of the investment needs. PPP and innovative financing are additional tools to pool more financing to the sector. The European financing mostly comes with grants for advisory services to help with the implementation process from the planning to the operation. The projects’ sustainability and measures to ensure the social price of water and wastewater is also an important issue of the implementation of the plan. Speakers will discuss these issues with the Moderator to share their views and present their contribution to the implementation of the ENWRP (2017-2037).
