Singapore - Water Price

Water pricing is an important and effective mechanism to reflect the scarcity value of water. Water is priced not only to recover the full costs of its supply and production, but also to incorporate the higher cost of producing water from unconventional sources, specifically NEWater and desalinated water. 

The water price was last revised in 2000, over the period from 1997 to 2000. 

Meeting water demand in growing cities: a PPP project in Sudan

Significant increases in investment and improvements in management capacity are required to meet the demand for infrastructure services in the rapidly growing cities of low- and middle-income countries.

The Market for Small-Scale Piped Water Systems in Kenya

There are at least 1,200 small water service providers in Kenya’s rural and peri-urban areas. These community- managed projects generally serve between 50 and 2,500 connections, including both household and shared connections. Many of these systems need to improve both the quality and quantity of water that they supply. Yet given the country’s developmental needs, public and donor funds are unable to meet the national demand for widespread and decentralized infrastructure investment.
