Small Piped Water Networks: Helping Local Entrepreneurs to Invest

Small Piped Water Networks: Helping Local Entrepreneurs to Invest
  • Asian Development Bank (ADB). September 2004
  • This book is about small-scale private water providers in Asian cities and the entrepreneurial potential of small piped network operators. It proposes that city officials, city water utilities, and local banks work closely with small network entrepreneurs to bring water supplies to the poor and disadvantaged. The study examines small piped networks through case studies: how and who starts these operations; who they supply, with what, at what cost, and using what technologies; their business and risk management approaches; and what hinders their development. The book offers practical recommendations to city governments and utilities for getting local water network entrepreneurs to invest.
