    Public-Private Partnerships for Urban Water Utilities

    A Review of Experiences in Developing Countries

    This study seeks to contribute to the understanding of the performance of PPP projects in urban water utilities in developing countries.

    Argentina: The Salta Water Public-Private Partnership

    The note explains that a number of considerations embedded in the contract and the Government's continuous commitment to make the Salta Water Public-Private Partnership (PPP) sustainable in the long-term have contributed to its survival when others in Argentina failed. Coordination across government levels and ministries, practical pro-poor measures to expand service and a flexible contract were major reasons why this concession succeeded. The Provincial Government's stability and continuous finance of subsidies and the investment program have also been factors in the concession's success. The authors point out the lessons learned from the Salta Water PPP.
