Many of the countries in which K&M has worked lack universal access to and continuous supply of clean water, and adequate wastewater treatment. Treatment plants with insufficient capacity, inefficient distribution systems, tariffs below cost-recovery and poor governance are some of the reasons that explain why water and wastewater services are still inadequate in many countries.
K&M understand these challenges and advised governments around the world on how to resolve them. K&M experts have forecasted demand, identified least-cost options for meeting demand, analyzed the feasibility of specific projects, structured transaction to mobilize private capital, drafted agreements and bidding documents, and assisted during procurement and negotiation. K&M’s services to governments have also included assessing willingness to pay, and analyzing or designing regulatory regimes.
K&M has advised private investors on water or wastewater treatment plants. Specific tasks have included commercial feasibility studies, risk assessments, design and process reviews, financial modeling, market assessments and cost estimation.
