Addressing the financing gap in the water sector in Ethiopia, Rwanda and Uganda

Many countries have a massive finance gap in meeting the ambitious targets they have set for the water sector (UN-Water, 2019). This means increasing one or more sources of funds: tariffs, taxes and transfers. Each country has its own specific opportunities and bottlenecks in increasing one or more of these sources.

In 2018, IRC commissioned three country assessments (desk review and in-country interviews) to identify the main constraints to attracting additional finance for the sector in Uganda, Rwanda and Ethiopia. This briefing note synthesises the findings, highlighting commonalities and differences between the three countries.

Abstract

Many countries have a massive finance gap in meeting the ambitious targets they have set for the water sector (UN-Water, 2019). This means increasing one or more sources of funds: tariffs, taxes and transfers. Each country has its own specific opportunities and bottlenecks in increasing one or more of these sources.

In 2018, IRC commissioned three country assessments (desk review and in-country interviews) to identify the main constraints to attracting additional finance for the sector in Uganda, Rwanda and Ethiopia. This briefing note synthesises the findings, highlighting commonalities and differences between the three countries.
