Helping India Achieve 24x7 Water Supply Service by 2010
Providing access to safe drinking water and appropriate sanitation facilities remains a challenge in India. Despite increasing allocation of financial resources, the sustainability of investments in the drinking water sector is a concern.
This Technical Note summarizes observations and outputs from the Roundtable Discussion on Private Sector Participation (PSP) in Water Supply in India held in Bangalore on 15-16 June 2005 and the follow-up conference on 25 August 2005 in Delhi. It is designed to disseminate to a wider audience the broader principles of PSP options that could be considered for India and other developing member countries in order to promote accelerated progress toward achievement of the water sector-focused Millennium Development Goals by 2015.
This document is not a detailed technical or financial synopsis of what should be done but simply seeks to provide an indication of options and an outline road map toward achieving greater effectiveness and improved progress in the timely delivery of MDG targets.
