Moving Beyond the Privatisation Debate: Different Approaches to financing Water and Electricity in Developing Countries
AbstractIn today’s developing world the vast majority of water and electricity services are provided by public utilities. Rather than asking “who should provide the services”, the authors adopt a financing point of view and look at how access to basic utilities for all can be funded in a sustainable manner. The paper is based on a series of multi-stakeholder consultations which the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, in cooperation with the UN Financing for Development Offi ce and the International Poverty Center of UNDP has organized in 2006 and 2007.
