AfWAPrésentation Bangkok 1 CAPACITY BUILDING WORKSHOP ON PARTNERSHIPS FOR IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF WATER UTILITIES IN THE ASIA AND PACIFIC REGION 25-27 JULY 2006, BANGKOK, THAILAND PROVIDING WATER AND SANITATION SERVICES TO URBAN POOR IN AFRICA REGION Mr. (...) PROVIDING WATER AND SANITATION SERVICES TO URBAN POOR IN AFRICA REGION REGULATION Main Tasks • Monitoring the execution of all contracts, ensuring compliance w ith agreed standards of service and tariff limits; • Monitoring tariff revisions, considering both the appropriate level and tariff structures; • Penalising the private operator (and, in some cases, the public operator) where breaches of agreed performance standards are found; • Seting revised performance standards at regular intervals. 8 PROVIDING WATER AND SANITATION SERVICES TO URBAN POOR IN AFRICA REGION -F- RESULTS For those countries who have undertaken major institutional reforms we have noticed very remarkable improvement as follows: • Cost-efficiency improvements have been evident, although it will take some time for all operational and organisational inefficiencies to be eradicated. • There has also been evidence of improved Operational efficiency resulting from significant reductions in water losses. • Improvements in the organisation and management of the sector by central and local government bodies. • Improvement of service coverage but still more has to come • There is emerging evidence of improved customer satisfaction with the quality of service provided. • The degree of cost recovery has improved significantly in some countries. This has arisen through revised pricing schedules and improvements in the rate of bill collection PROVIDING WATER AND SANITATION SERVICES TO URBAN POOR IN AFRICA REGION Thank you.
