About this book

The potential economic benefits of private sector participation in the provision of water and sanitation services are well-known. This book instead focuses on the role public authorities must continue to play to guarantee sustainability and levels of service. It shows how these objectives are realized in very different ways - and not always successfully - in developing countries. The authors review the available literature on the subject and include case studies from Manila, Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Abidjan and Mexico City.
