INVESTING FOR IMPACT
WATER UNITE IS NOT ABOUT ‘BUSINESS AS USUAL’
WE ARE THINKING BIG
The funds we raise with your help will provide substantial new types of investment, filling the funding gaps that trap hundreds of millions of people in water poverty whilst helping to address the issue of plastic pollution.
Drawing on expertise from across the development, finance and industry sectors, Water Unite aims to support and catalyse new and additional types of investment in sectors that lag behind many others in accessing finance.
Water Unite will also aim to address the fact that water and sanitation require a relatively higher ratio of ongoing operating costs. It will invest in systems strengthening and improved coordination among government, private sector and community groups.
Investing in a circular economy
A portion of the money raised by Water Unite will be invested into projects for deposit return schemes and recycling facilities in the countries where it operates. Moving away from the current take-make-dispose industrial model, to introduce a circular economy, will redefine growth and focus on positive society-wide benefits.
Sustainable revenue streams
Our long term definition of success is to enable the development of sustainable water, sanitation and recycling services at scale that are able to become independent of aid within a 10-15 year time period, by relying on sustainable revenue streams.
