The clean water challenge: Only 3 percent of water on earth is fresh and potable for healthy human consumption, and 70% of this is used for agricultural production. Paul talks to John Simon about how Total Impact Capital is using blended finance to fund social enterprises with expertise in achieving several of the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals, including #6: Clean Water and Sanitation for all by 2030. For example, investors funded water delivery franchises in East Africa and supported water cooperatives in Central America to deliver cost effective, full-time access to clean water.
