Washington DC (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
The longstanding model for funding water infrastructure, reliant on municipal bonds and other government subsidies, is not keeping pace with rising investment needs. At the same time, federal, state and municipal budgets are being squeezed. Despite this, alternative solutions have been slow to emerge in North America. This is finally starting to change as project developers get smarter about addressing community concerns regarding jobs, project costs, rate increases and political control. The water finance panel, chaired by Debra Coy of Svanda & Coy Consulting, will look at what is working today and what still needs to be done to increase the pace of water infrastructure investment.
Executives from the front lines in alternative finance will discuss lessons learned from recent projects they have been involved in and offer an insider’s view on market prospects for the coming year. Speakers will include:
