Development Policies & Practice - May 2012 From Market Logic to a Public Water Service: What Role for public authorities?

Small water network entrepreneurs have earned the recognition of public authorities and donors over the past fifteen years. In a large number of developing countries, they are now seen as legitimate actors in the field of water supply in small agglomerations and neighborhoods of large cities. But their action continues to raise important questions: How can they be made more professional while preserving their ability to adapt to local expectations? How can quality standards be raised without making them less affordable? What mechanisms can be used to fi nance and supervise their activities? In practice, allowing small entrepreneurs a place in the “water market” is not enough to ensure access for the largest number or ongoing improvements in services. Public intervention is central to organize these actors’ shift to public service logics.

Politiques & Pratiques de développement - Mai 2012 De la logique marchande au service public de l'eau: quel rôle des pouvoirs publics?

Institution:

Ces quinze dernières années, les petits entrepreneurs de réseaux d’eau ont gagné la reconnaissance des pouvoirs publics et des bailleurs de fonds. Dans un grand nombre de pays du Sud, ils sont désormais considérés comme des acteurs légitimes pour l’approvisionnement en eau des petites agglomérations et des quartiers des grandes villes. Mais leur action continue à soulever d’importantes questions: comment les professionnaliser tout en préservant leurs capacités d’adaptation aux attentes locales? Comment élever les standards de qualité des services sans nuire à leur accessibilité? Quels mécanismes pour fi nancer et encadrer leurs activités? De fait, concéder aux petits entrepreneurs une place dans le «marché de l’eau» ne suffit pas à assurer l’accès au plus grand nombre ni l’amélioration continue des services. L’intervention publique est centrale pour organiser la transition de ces acteurs vers des logiques de service public.

Using Small Entrepreneurs in Developing Countries: A Strategic—Not Automatic!—Choice

While small local enterprises in developing countries defi nitely have a role to play in expanding access to drinking water, they must not, for all that, be seen as the next “solution” that some are constantly seeking. The diversity among these actors requires one to carefully examine their characteristics, operating rationales and constraints. All these elements need to be taken into account before including these actors in sectoral programs. Recourse to small private entrepreneurs is not a universal cure-all, but under what conditions is it a suitable solution?

S’il ne fait aucun doute que les petites entreprises locales ont un rôle à jouer dans les pays en développement pour étendre l’accès à l’eau potable, il ne faudrait pas pour autant en faire la nouvelle fi gure du «bon modèle» que d’aucuns recherchent inlassablement. L’hétérogénéité de ces acteurs exige de se pencher précisément sur leurs caractéristiques, leurs logiques d’actions et leurs contraintes: autant d’éléments à prendre en compte avant de les intégrer dans les programmes sectoriels. Si le recours aux petits entrepreneurs privés n’est pas la panacée, dans quelles conditions représente-t-il une solution adaptée?

IFC Smart Lessons - November 2010 Improving Rural Water Service in Rwanda with Public-Private Partnerships

Downloads:


Author: PREVOST, C., MWANAFUNZI, B., JAIN, N.
Year of Publishing: 2010
Publisher: IFC
Institution:

In 2004, a field review commissioned by the World Bank found that half of the piped rural water supply systems in Rwanda were nonfunctional due to poor management and poor cost recovery. In response, the government shifted to a public-private partnership (PPP) management model. As of 2010, 235 rural water supply systems—28 percent of the 847 systems in the country—are managed under PPPs serving 1 million people. This SmartLesson shares what the World Bank and Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) learned in support of Rwanda’s remarkable progress, including using best practices to make the case for reform; fostering ownership, simplicity, and flexibility of design; using peer-to-peer learning; and evaluating factors for success.

IFC Smart Lessons - November 2009 Scaling Up Rural Water Supply Service in Benin: A Programmatic Approach and Budget Support

People in rural areas of Benin have a greatly increased access to safe drinking water, thanks to government vision, donor support, and the investment and advisory assistance of the World Bank. In 2000, the government of Benin began preparing the ministries of key sectors for a shift from a project approach to a programmatic approach with enhanced budget support. The World Bank, through Budget Support Operations1 and other donors, has supported Benin’s reforms in budget preparation and management and in implementation of the country’s Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper. The Ministry of Rural Water Supply was part of this move, and Benin is on track to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) target for its rural drinking-water supply. The SmartLessons below share how the World Bank contributed to Benin’s remarkable progress in this sector, and what we learned along the way.
