Bedoya del Olmo, Celia
While climate change and natural disasters will continue to exacerbate the water situation in the region, there are several other challenges related to governance and the level of investment in the sector, both at the national policy level and at the level of the water utility. The state of Caribbean water utilities and water quality and accessibility in urban and rural populations also present serious challenges, which must be addressed. This white paper seeks to present the main issues surrounding the water sector in the Caribbean and articulate broad policy recommendations for consideration in the development of a strategy to address these issues.
