Within the general debate on neoliberalism and privatization, private sector participation (PSP) in water is one of the most controversial and emotional debates of the current development discourse. After a decade of experimentation with PSP in water supply, there is an emerging trend of failures or renegotiations. Despite this trend, PSP debate is still alive, but repackaged in different forms, such as PPP. This book puts emotions, ideologies and rhetoric aside, and provides a serious empirical investigation of whether PSP leads to increased welfare, especially for the poor.
