This World Water Day, the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) is celebrating the success of the Kigali Bulk Water Project in Rwanda’s capital.
 
The large-scale water treatment plant, due for completion in 2020, will produce 40 megaliters of clean water per day, equivalent to one-third of Kigali's total supply. Water will be drawn from the Nyabarongo River to be treated before distributing a clean supply to up to 500,000 domestic, commercial, and industrial customers. Kigali Water is one of the first water projects to be developed using a public-private partnership (PPP) model in sub-Saharan Africa.

El 22 de marzo es el Día Mundial del Agua. (i) Ya hemos hablado sobre las siete cosas que tal vez no sepa sobre el agua así que le presentamos aquí cinco hechos más que muestran los vínculos entre este elemento y la salud, la energía, el clima, la agricultura y la urbanización. Pero primero:

Nelson Minar (i) elaboró este increíble mapa a partir de la base de datos de hidrografía del Servicio Geológico de Estados Unidos.

To skip or not to skip (the grid): larger and smaller energy PPPs

I recently took part in #skipthegrid, a social media forum about renewables, which has led me to ask: “Is off-grid the way of the future for energy Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in lower-income countries?”

At the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) we are supporting smaller, off-grid projects in the lowest income countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and South and Southeast Asia by mobilizing private investment for the provision of power to commercial off-grid properties and the construction of mini-grids.
