National PDBs could make a significant contribution to the financing of the water sector, but do not currently do so. To unlock this potential, governments must work both on regulating the water sector and provide the mandate to national PDBs to ensure that the water sector can access financing from them. This policy brief provides recommendations to the shareholders of national PDBs: states and governments. However, some of the recommendations also apply to regional and sub-regional PDBs. It is based on a study funded by AFD and conducted by IRC.
