Project Description

IFC will support the Private Investment Promotion Agency ('Proinversion' or 'Client'), a public agency of the Government of Peru (GoP), in implementing its "Drinking Water Catchment and Transfer infrastructure to supply Lima" project (the Project). IFC will work with Proinversion to structure and implement a competitive tender to select and contract a qualified private sector partner through a public-private partnership. The partner will invest in Lima’s bulk water supply infrastructure, and increase the availability of clean water for the city through sustainable management of associated water treatment and supply facilities.

People Affected By This Project

The successful implementation of this project is expected to expand people’s access to, and increase the availability of, Lima’s drinking water supply in its Northern and Southern districts; increase storage capacity of water resources during the rainy season; and increase the treatment capacity of Lima’s bulk water to bring it to drinking water standards.
