IBNet water and waste water utilities benchmarking

PWWA, in partnership with the World Bank/IBNet, has established a sustainable benchmarking system for water and waste water utilities in the Pacific region and helps improve performance and enhance service delivery in the sector.

This year's Pacific Water and Wastewater Utilities Benchmaking Report was facilitated by Alexander Danilenko,  Senior Water and Sanitation Specialist, Water and Sanitation Program, the World Bank.

The Pacific Region Infrastructure Facility (PRIF) and its partners funded the consultants working on the Benchmarking Report.

The latest Benchmarking Report is available as an online database at This database will soon be relocated to the PWWA website.
