Chennai Metro Water Supply and Sewerage Board
Shaun Cox from Inxure Strategy Group represented the Australian Water Partnership (AWP) in Chennai in meetings involving the World Bank and the Chennai Metro Water Supply and Sewerage Board (CMWSSB). The purpose of the visit was to:
- continue to grow relationships with the World Bank and the CMWSSB; and
- assist in progressing the development of “Technical Advices” (T/A’s) for projects to be undertaken by the World Bank and AWP for the CMWSSB. This also entailed clarifying AWP’s role if any in the delivery of these T/A’s.
This visit and negotiations has lead to three areas being the preferred focus of Technical Assistance by the World Bank and AWP. They are:
- Non-Revenue Water;
- Performance Based Contracts; and
- Creating a Centre of Excellence.
This small activity helped grow our relationship with the World Bank and identified possible future areas of engagement.
