Multipurpose infrastructure (MPI) is very attractive due to the added value of providing energy and water services like water supply, irrigation, flood control, navigation and others, to harnessing economies of scale and scope. Nevertheless, this type of water infrastructure poses formidable policy and operational challenges. Finance, governance, and proper care of environmental and social concerns are cornerstones of MPI development. The seminar will discuss case studies focusing on project cycle of large-scale projects under climate change, and innovative financial mechanisms for MPI. A panel of experts will discuss their implications from the public policy perspective.
