    Gabon: Société d’Energie et d’Eau

    In 1997, Gabon privatized its electricity and water utility, Société d’Energie et d’Eau du Gabon (SEEG).

Five years on, the concessionaire has performed well in established service areas, often exceeding targets, but has made less progress in more isolated areas. This Note assesses lessons for the design of contracts with incentives for expanding service beyond the immediate circles of major urban centers—and on the potential role of multi-utilities.
