Just a reminder, World Water Day 2007 is coming up and on a related note, the magazine Strategy+Business has feature article on global infrastructure and the costs need to update our water, power and transportation systems. Upgrading water systems will require the bulk of the costs (see graphic below). From the article: “The world’s urban infrastructure needs a $40 trillion makeover. Here’s how to reinvigorate our electricity, water, and transportation systems by integrating finance, governance, technology, and design.” You can read it here.

  2. In the celebration of the World Water Day the PSD blog is running an online dialogue between the World Bank and the IFC on water issues. Corinne Figueredo, head of the Cleaner Technologies facility, is blogging on the IFC and Tracy Hart (water resource management expert) on the Bank’s side. Perhaps this can be on interest to your readers.
