LAIF & CIF contribution by sector: Drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)

Friday, 8 October, 2021

The Latin America Investment Facility (LAIF) and the Caribbean Investment Facility (CIF) finance projects in LAC countries to facilitate access to safe drinking water and effective sanitation systems, contributing to the achievement of SDG 6. LAIF and CIF facilitate and promote public and private investment in water and sanitation infrastructure, seeking environmentally sound and climate-relevant solutions. They have helped to mobilise funding for the construction and repair of drinking water and sanitation systems in several LAC cities in countries such as Ecuador, Nicaragua, Suriname and Dominican Republic. They also support the development of integrated water resources management (IWRM) policies, strengthen water and sanitation management capacities and provide finance for the pre-investment studies required to access favourable financing mechanisms in the water sector.
