Decentralizing and Corporatizing Water and
Sanitation in Developing Countries

March 18, 2013


Alison Post at Berkeley, March 2013.

Over the last 20 years, international financial institutions and academics have advocated for two types of reforms for urban water and sanitation systems: decentralization and institutional reforms designed to insulate service providers from interference by elected officials. This presentation documents their adoption in the developing world and analyzes experiences to date with both reform initiatives.
