Abstract

This case study of urban water and sanitation in Honduras focuses on the perplexing phenomenon of low level equilibrium (LLE). It first seeks to characterize LLE in terms of sector performance and to show how it is propitiated by flawed arrangements for sectoral governance, organization of service delivery and regulation. It then turns to the question of why it is so difficult to escape from LLE. To this end, it analyzes the failure of recent reform efforts, using political economy techniques.
