The Water Finance Website is a resource to help design a financing component for USAID programs that are intended to respond to the Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act of 2005. We hope it will also be useful to development professionals outside of USAID who are promoting pro-poor water and sanitation services worldwide.
» The site is intended to help integrate finance into broader water, sanitation and hygiene strategy.
» The site provides an approach to assessing a country's situation and exploring ways to promote financing for pro-poor water, sanitation and hygiene services.
» The site provides a set of structured questions and resource materials for an individual or a team to work with over several weeks.
» Working with the site helps the user to determine how to structure assistance with an appropriate set of objectives and program interventions to promote sustainable financing for water, sanitation and hygiene.
