Document Details:

This document starts with an overview of the water sector in the PPP, trends in different parts of the world, and an analysis of contracting out and outsourcing. Then the study goes in depth on cases of contracting out (services and management contracts in the water sector) in countries such as Chile, Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti, African, India, Indonesia, and the USA. The document is an attempt to answer questions related to where and how to conduct contracting out; whether contracting out actually has any impact on efficiency and effectiveness, and how contracting out can be further enhanced to deliver improved water and sanitation services in developing countries.
