The current financing and regulatory channels in England and Wales for water infrastructure investment focus on a single-sector approach and are not designed to consider multi-sector investments. It is not water companies alone that should shoulder the burden, since water risks affect multiple sectors. There is therefore a need for a multi-sector approach to innovate financing models which considers different ways of using the existing and new finance channels to address the water asset investment challenges in the UK.
