    Blending in the Water and Sanitation Sector

    Blending is an instrument for achieving European Union (EU) external policy objectives, complementary to other aid modalities and pursuing the relevant regional, national and overarching policy priorities. It is the combination of EU grants with loans, risk capital or guarantees from public and private financiers. The idea behind the instrument is that the EU grant element can be used strategically to attract additional financing for important investments for development in EU partner countries.
