For several years, the World Bank has been promoting the participation of the private sector in the water and sanitation sector at the formal level focusing on utilities performance and regulatory reforms. Recent evidence suggests however, that the poor urban populations are still without access to the water and sanitation services, despite sector modernization. This has raised interest in the small-scale and informal private sector. These small providers have the potential to deliver improved services to low-income areas at comparatively low investment costs.
