We improve services by working side-by-side with local providers

In cities, strengthening the organisations that have been tasked to deliver city-wide services is crucial.

We are a trusted partner to utilities, municipalities and the private sector, supporting them to develop services, build infrastructure and attract funding that will help them reach low-income communities.

Our focus on financial viability creates more resilient communities

Creating services which are financially viable is extremely difficult, but vital if the benefits are to exist over the long term.

We work with utilities and businesses to develop services which generate revenue whilst reaching the most vulnerable urban residents, and we advise regulators and governments on how to create an environment which enables businesses to succeed.
