Water and sewerage sector : private activity in Brazil spurs investments by 50 percent in 2012 (English)

In 2012, 32 new water and sewerage projects reached financial or contractual closure in nine lower- and upper-middle income countries. There were eleven projects in Brazil, fourteen projects in China, and one project each in Ghana, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Peru, the Russian Federation, and Serbia. Four projects that closed before 2012 received additional investments in 2012. They were in Armenia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. Total investment commitments (hereafter, investment, all in United States (U.S.) dollar unless otherwise indicated) in water and sewerage projects amounted to 4 billion dollars this year, up 50 percent from 2011. Of this amount, 3.9 billion dollars was invested in new projects, while projects that closed before 2012 received additional investments worth 178 million dollars. Three large Brazilian concessions (two sewerage collection and treatment plants, one water utility with sewerage) attracted nearly 2.5 billion dollars, which accounted for most of the increase in investments in 2012. The compound annual growth rate in the water and sewerage sector was seven percent, in the period 2002-2012.
