Document Water sector governance in Africa

The AfDB launched during the 3rd Africa Water week two major reports. The “Water sector governance in Africa” report finds that poor governance has been a major reason for the poor record of sustainability of water and sanitation services affecting millions of Africans. 

The “Guidelines for User Fees and Cost Recovery for urban and rural water and sanitation” touch upon a very critical issue for all water sectorinvestments: how to ensure that water and sanitation services are financially viable, in addition to being environmentally and socially sustainable?
