Tokyo, Japan – A new ADBI Press book spotlights imperatives for improving public services in Asia and the Pacific and meeting the access needs of nearly half of the world's population to safe sanitation services. Accountability Mechanisms for Inclusive City-Level Public Services in Asia examines regional and global experiences to better understand accountability mechanisms for effective service delivery.

Edited by ADBI’s KE Seetha Ram, KPMG’s Anand Madhavan, and Krea University’s, Sujatha Srinivasan, the book describes performance assessment and budget briefs as keys to enhancing service transparency and accountability and explains how amplified systems can benefit policy makers and citizens alike.

The discussions also include the complexities of engaging community-based organizations, which require system innovation and vertical and social mechanism accountability for expanding quality sanitation services.

The valuable insights highlighted in the volume echoes the spirit of the Group of Seven framework to mobilize private finance in developing economies’ health and sanitation sectors, reportedly to be announced during the United Nations General Assembly meeting this week, and helps shape more inclusive water and sanitation policies.
