This presentation describes how a blend of public and concessional financing is being used to attract larger investments for public water supply company SOMAGEP-SA in Mali. It was presented at the IRC WASH Debate "Blended finance: Is it all in a mix?" jointly organised with NWP on 4 December 2018 in The Hague, the Netherlands. Dutch development aid supports technical assistance through a Water Operator Partnership between Netherlands-based World Waternet and SOMAGEP-SA. Small investments from Dutch Development Bank FMO are used to improve energy efficiency and the reduction of non-revenue water, which will hopefully improve the performance and credit rating of SOMAGEP-SA.
