K&M is pleased to announce that in conjunction with the Inter-American Development Bank and The World Bank, it assessed the impact of Covid on more than 20 water utilities in Latin America and the Caribbean. This paper published by the Inter-American Development Bank, within the framework of a consultancy financed by the Swiss Embassy in Colombia-Cooperación Económica y Desarrollo (SECO), explains some unexpected results of this assessment.
This paper was co-authored by Nils Janson, Managing Director of Policy and Regulation, and Laura Bulbena. The co-authors worked with editors, Maria Eduarda Gouvêa Berto, Keisuke Sasaki, Javier Garcia Merino, and Julio Cesar Aguilera Wilches. Special thanks to Corinne Cathala, Evan Cayetano, and Maria Navia for helping convince the utilities to provide data. Also, the team greatly appreciates the insights provided by Anamaría Camacho López, and the contributions and comments of Carmen Yee Batista, P.E. and Berenice Flores Arias Uijtewaal of The World Bank.
