The IBNET Water Supply and Sanitation Blue Book 2014. The International Benchmarking Network for Water and Sanitation Utilities Databook
  • The IBNET Water Supply and Sanitation Blue Book 2014. The International Benchmarking Network for Water and Sanitation Utilities Databook
  • World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). August 2014
  • The International Benchmarking Network for Water and Sanitation Utilities (IBNET) provides a set of tools that allows water and sanitation utilities to measure their performance both against their own past performance and against the performance of similar utilities at the national, regional, and global levels. The Blue Book is designed to raise awareness of how benchmarking and specifically IBNET tools can help enhance utility performance and thereby help to improve water and wastewater services. This issue summarizes water sector development in 2006¿11, des...[Read full description]

Water Operators Partnerships - Case Study: Twinning Khulna WASA and Maynilad
  • Water Operators Partnerships - Case Study: Twinning Khulna WASA and Maynilad
  • Asian Development Bank (ADB). July 2014
  • This paper looks at a knowledge sharing initiative called Water Operators Partnerships in Asia and the Pacific, established by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). The program twins an experienced mentor utility¿in this case Maynilad¿with a recipient utility, here Khulna WASA. Maynilad provides on-site training to improve the performance of Khulna WASA. The paper examines the potential of the initiative under the titles: the challenge of expansion; learning from the mentor; from theory to practice; mutual exchange; and finally a summary of ADB's role as facilita...[Read full description]

(The) Missing Link in Sanitation Service Delivery. A Review of Fecal Sludge Management in 12 Cities
  • (The) Missing Link in Sanitation Service Delivery. A Review of Fecal Sludge Management in 12 Cities
  • World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). April 2014
  • Globally, the great majority of urban dwellers, especially poor people, rely for their sanitation on non-sewered systems that generate a mix of solid and liquid wastes generally termed fecal sludge. In poor and rapidly expanding cities, fecal sludge management represents a growing challenge, generating significant negative public health and environmental risks. Without proper management, fecal sludge is often allowed to accumulate in poorly designed pits, is discharged into storm drains and open water, or is dumped into waterways, wasteland, and unsanitary du...[Read full description]

  • Coordination of Water Actions at the Country Level. A Report of the UN-Water Task Force on Country Level Coordination
  • UN-Water. April 2014
  • This report analyses water related coordination mechanisms in 13 countries representing differing humanitarian and development situations and geographic locations. The information collected has been supplemented by selected case studies on coordination provided by UN-Water Members and Partners and an examination of the literature on coordination mechanisms of government for water supply, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and water resources management. It includes an introduction by UN-Water which explains the scope, purpose and benefit of its work, a summary of ...[Read full description]

River Salinity and Climate Change: evidence from coastal Bangladesh
  • River Salinity and Climate Change: evidence from coastal Bangladesh
  • World Bank. March 2014
  • This paper presents a study conducted in Bangladesh, which quantifies the prospective relationship between climate-induced changes in sea level, temperature, rainfall, and altered riverine flows from the Himalayas, and the spread and intensity of salinisation on river water in the coastal zone by 2050. The research takes into account the projected land subsidence of the Ganges Delta, as well as alternative scenarios of upstream withdrawal of freshwater. The findings indicate that climate change will cause significant changes in river salinity in the southwest...[Read full description]

  • International Finance Corporation (IFC), World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). August 2013
  • This report examines private sector provision of on-site sanitation services in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Peru, and Tanzania, four countries where the local private sector already plays a major role in the construction and maintenance of sanitation in rural (and many urban) areas. In each country, the study examines the preferences and circumstances of poor households and the performance of enterprises that provide sanitation-related services directly to them. It examines commercial and investment climate factors that may affect enterprises' actual or perceived ...[Read full description]
