Reflexiones sobre el futuro del sector de agua y saneamiento en Argentina
[Reflections on the future of the sector of water and sanitation in Argentina]


  • Ferro, Gustavo


After the currency devaluation of 2002, tariffs on public services were frozen in Argentina and public utilities contracts were put under renegotiation. The sector of water and sanitation is relatively in disadvantage with respect to other Latin American countries of the similar level of development (the most remarkable case being Chile). Coverage is not universal, specially in sewerage, and there is a diversity of regulatory treatment of the sector in the different jurisdictions which are in charge of the sector. Here, it is made a discussion on the problems of the sector and some lines of thought are displayed in order to set issues in agenda for the future.
