Moving Beyond the Privatisation Debate: Different Approaches to financing Water and Electricity in Developing Countries

Daniel Platz ()

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: In today’s developing world the vast majority of water and electricity services are provided by public utilities. Rather than asking “who should provide the services†, the authors adopt a financing point of view and look at how access to basic utilities for all can be funded in a sustainable manner. The paper is based on a series of multi-stakeholder consultations which the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, in cooperation with the UN Financing for Development Offi ce and the International Poverty Center of UNDP has organized in 2006 and 2007.
