Peru Reinvigorates Water and Sanitation Policy
On 20 January 2017 Peru’s government announced a budget of US$1.24 billion for water and sanitation projects to be built in 2017, a 70% increase over 2016 spending. The announcement follows four legislative decrees passed in December 2016 aimed to unlock over US$25 billion of stalled infrastructure projects.
New legislation promoting decentralization, autonomy, and access to a water infrastructure-specific fund signals the government’s intent to improve national infrastructure programs. In this Research Note, Bluefield water experts analyze the impacts of this legislation on the pipeline for public-private partnerships, Peru’s infrastructure commitment, and new entrants into the market.
