Strengthening Pro-poor Targeting of Investments by African Utilities in Urban Water and Sanitation: The Role of the International Development Association of the World Bank
Case studies from Ghana, Burkina Faso and Tanzania
This report analyzes the effects of selected projects on water supply and sanitation services (WSS) in urban areas of sub-Saharan Africa. It places particular emphasis on the way poor communities and households are included in those investments. The authors explore how the inclusion of low-income areas and households is conceptualized in urban WSS policies and strategies, included in the design of specific projects under consideration and implemented on the ground.
