Request for literature on demand for investment in water services infrastructure

Dear Members,

I am a faculty member at National Institute of Public Finance and Policy, New Delhi, India. I am looking for literature (empirical) on 'demand for investment in water services infrastructure'. By water services, I mean access to safe drinking water and sanitation. I would appreciate if you could kindly share your thoughts and experience on the following issues:

a) Available methods for estimation of global demand for investment in water services infrastructure
b) Cost to provide access to safe drinking water to a person or household
c) Cost to provide access to sanitation to a person or household

To make the estimates robust, I need to know the unit costs from all continents, if not available for countries.

The objective of this exercise is to project demand for investment in water services infrastructure to met MDGs or beyond. Information shared with me will be used for academic purposes only not for any commercial gains.

Best regards,

Sacchidananda

Dear Sacchidananda,

Thankyou for your posting to SuSanA forum. I am the lead of Working Group 2 on Finance and Economics. There is a fair amount of literature (published and grey) on this topic that is available. Please see www.susana.org/en/resources/library?vbl_2%5B%5D=&vbl_8%5B%5D=39 (this filters the library by WG 2 as a theme). The most comprehensive work is being done by WSP led by Guy Hutton. Please see www.wsp.org/content/economic-impacts-sanitation . Guy and colleagues are currently working on an ESI Toolkit which they are planning to pilot in October.

best regards,

Jonathan
