Private Sector Participation in the Ugandan Water Sector. A Review of 10 Years of Private Management of Small Town Water Systems

Private Sector Participation in the Ugandan Water Sector. A Review of 10 Years of Private Management of Small Town Water Systems
  • World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). December 2013
  • This working paper reviews the first decade (2001-11) of Uganda's private sector participation (PSP) model for small town water supply. In evaluating the impact of this development, this working paper aims to guide further reform within Uganda, and to inform other countries considering similar PSP approaches. The core idea behind PSP centered reform in Uganda was to improve sustainability and efficiency of piped networks. To evaluate how well the Ugandan model has managed the balance between public and private interest in water service delivery, the paper provides a concise description of its current performance and characteristics as well as its institutional and regulatory framework.
