This short paper builds on the outputs from the Roundtable on Financing Water, held in Paris in April 2017. The author makes the case for four discrete actions: i) to renew the emphasis on public finance; ii) to exploit the opportunities of purposed finance; iii) to optimise the value of development finance; and iv) to explore hybridity and blended finance; to help bridge the water infrastructure gap.
