An example from South Africa’s BFP
Name : Water tariff funding for ecological infrastructure
Description : Investing in ecological infrastructure as part of catchment management offers significant water regulation and supply benefits along with co-benefits for biodiversity, livelihoods and disaster risk reduction, among others. This finance solution aims to improve existing means, and establish new viable mechanisms, to capture and distribute an adequate portion of water tariffs for investment in ecological infrastructure in catchments. This would be in keeping with the user-pays principle and is achievable by operationalizing elements of the revised Draft Water Pricing Strategy.
Note that the three-sentence description above includes the instruments (“water tariffs”, distribution of tariffs), expected results (“water regulation and supply benefits”), and the strategy (“operationalizing” the Draft Water Pricing Strategy) all framed under investment in ecological infrastructure.
