Water Benefit Partners (WBP) is a Public Private Partnership (PPP) that aims to develop an innovative financing mechanism to support additional water projects in regions particularly affected by water related problems – The Water Benefit Certification Scheme.
The Water Benefit Certification Scheme (WBCS) is open to qualifying technologies and measures that address locally defined water issues and create verifiable benefits to natural and human environments – so called Water Benefit Certificates.
