Abstract: During 2009-2011, the Scientific Commission “Public Economy, Public Services” of CIRIEC International has embarked on a series of researches on local public services bearing fruit in national sectoral monographs. The water sector is one of the sectors analysed. This first synthesis of nine monographs (seven from European countries, according to the contributions of the national sections of CIRIEC International - Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden, and two from Japan and Algeria) maps out the diversity of national situations and the broad outlines of the current trends and developments.

Keywords: Water services; local services of general economic interest; direct management; delegated management; environment; quality; accessibility; full-cost recovery; regulation; consumer satisfaction; human rights (search for similar items in EconPapers)
