Public finance – money derived from taxation- is an essential part of the puzzle of how to finance the Sustainable Development Goal for water and cover the life-cycle costs of service delivery.
On November 12th IRC organised an event on the role of public finance for reaching scale and sustainable services. How can aid and domestic revenue catalyse private investment in the sector? What can governments, donors and civil society do to improve the way taxes are used? The blog More bang for your bucks draws lessons from a health insurance scheme, Private Public Partnerships and other experience shared at the event.
