Engaging Local Private Operators in Water Supply and Sanitation Services

Initial lessons from emerging experience in Cambodia, Colombia, Paraguay, The Philippines, and Uganda Author: Thelma Triche, Sixto Requena, and Mukami Kariuki

This paper examines the experience of developing local private sector participation (PSP) in small and medium-size towns in Cambodia, Colombia, Paraguay, The Philippines, and Uganda. The paper, which reviews schemes supported by the World Bank, summarizes information on the contracts and the selection process, extracts lessons learned to date from the cases, and recommends follow-up activities to address some key issues and fill gaps that were identified in the course of the study. An overarching lesson from this study is that innovation and adaptation are essential to the successful introduction of local PSP. Designing interventions that include a process of innovation, adaptation, and refinement is the first step in ensuring that contracts are tailored to local characteristics and conditions.
