    SHS Medium Term Service Contracts in Bolivia: Teaser for Tender Package

    ERTIC Phase one and its solar PV market development program

    This is a “teaser” document designed to interest international and domestic investors in competing for the right to install government subsidized solar home systems (SHS) on a mass basis in four defined geographic areas of Bolivia. Using a combination of “medium term service contracts” and capital subsidies, the program was designed to develop self-sustaining solar home systems in these regions. Unlike other earlier SHS programs in other countries, the Bolivian program placed heavy emphasis on independent monitoring of the performance of winning service providers.

    Expanding Water and Sanitation Services to Low-Income Households: The Case of the La Paz-El Alto Concession

    Bolivia 's first major contract for private participation in the water sector was implemented in 1997. This was a twenty-five-year concession for the neighboring cities of La Paz and El Alto. To date the La Paz-El Alto concessionaire has met its service expansion obligations. But certain features of the contract could make it unnecessarily difficult to achieve the broad objective of universal service--as well as unnecessarily painful for some households. This Note explains why.

    Salida de operadores privados internacionales de agua en América Latina

    The exit of international water private operators in Latin America

    Many of international water operators, which were operating water and sewerage services in Latin America, withdrew from the region during the first five years of the new millennium. The study examines the causes and consequences of the withdrawal international water operators in 14 cases in five countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Uruguay, and Venezuela) as well as in Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico. The study finds different reasons explained the departure. For some international water operators, the withdrawal was driven by their refocusing in their local and regional markets. In these cases, the exit was planned with investments sold to local investors. In other cases, the exit resulted from changes in sectoral policies or social and...

    International Gas Trade-The Bolivia-Brazil Gas Pipeline

    The Bolivia-Brazil natural gas pipeline, which will transport natural gas more than 3,000 kilometers, will cost US$2.1 billion to construct. Despite the substantial benefits for both Bolivia and Brazil and the involvement of reputable private partners, the perceived risks and complexities of this large project made financing it a major challenge. Peter Law and Nelson de Franco explain the historical factors that shaped the project, how the financing package came together, and the role the pipeline will play in liberalizing the Brazilian hydrocarbon sector.
