The World Bank Water Global Practice, with support from the Global Water Security & Sanitation Partnership (GWSP), the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) and the Open Learning Campus, turned a time-tested workshop on Water Utility Financing into a free self-paced online course. The Water Utility Financing e-learning explains why adequately financed utilities are imperative to achieving universal access and enhanced water security, then suggests ways to fill utility financing gaps.
