Assessment of COVID-19’s Financial Impact on Water and Sanitation Utilities in Peru
Latin America and the CaribbeanOctober 22, 2020
The World Bank has contracted K&M to assess the impact of COVID-19 on water and sanitation utilities in Peru. K&M will begin with an assessment of the impact to date by reviewing data provided by utilities. Following this review, K&M will develop a generic financial model that can be used to quantify the projected financial and operational impact on the utilities. This draft financial model will be tested by applying it to one utility in Peru. After testing the financial model, K&M will finalize the generic financial model and prepare a user manual for it. In addition, based on the results of the application of the financial model, K&M will produce recommendations for mitigating the impacts of COVID-19 on utilities in Peru.
