– Investing in Water Infrastructure to Promote the Green Economy: Asset Management, a Financing Strategy and, Above All, Teamwork
We operate in a world where technical, human and financial resources are limited and where the needs to be met are immense. Our municipal officials need strategic, relevant and efficient information to invest and, especially, to finance their investments. To ensure increased autonomy and the maintenance of its assets, any municipality must develop an asset management program and develop innovative financial strategies to carry out its program. A municipality can achieve this as long as it gets an early start, makes its engineering and finance departments work as a team and takes advantage of all funding opportunities from higher governments to support the implementation of sound management of municipal assets.
