Interview about the market structure and key players in the water industry. The interview discusses the opportunities for investment, key players and their role in the water industry. The South Africa water industry has achieved considerable accomplishments in terms of access to water and to a lesser extent in sanitation; but the trade offs between financial sustainability and providing water a basic human right has resulted in limited access to financing for maintenance and investment in water infrastructure. The interview also reviews the alternative financing options in the water industry and what is needed in order to deal with the infrastructure maintenance and investment backlogs.
