Document Details:

This is a case study on private sector participation in the water sector in Nairobi, Kenya, particularly in the largest informal settlement of the city, called Kiberia. The case study analyzes a project which was developed to re-arrange the existing public-private partnerships where private sector participants were small local providers and established water services across informal settings. The document analyzes the underlying principles of this particular project and describes why water provision in a public-private partnership is a significant facet of the sector in filling gaps for effective implementation of services for poor consumers.
