How we helped
Castalia helped the government to develop an optimized investment plan which prioritized and coordinated projects. To do so, we gathered data on all planned and ongoing projects. We developed an optimization algorithm that prioritized projects by ‘net benefits delivered per dollar of public sector investment’, based on the data we collected. We then developed a plan to finance those investments, through optimal use of public and private finance.
We advised the government on allocating public funds between rural and urban water sectors, and on improving urban water utilities so that they could self-finance priority projects. We also trained government officials to use the investment planning methodology and model.
