Upgrading basic utilities system

Updating basic utilities
Providing fundamental utility services on demand
Extending basic physical infrastructure services
There are clear advantages to public/private partnership in the provision of basic services and infrastructure. While community involvement can reduce costs, increase cost recovery and promote sustainability, it is impossible for the poor to develop all the services they need by themselves. The capital costs of installing major infrastructure are too high. private suppliers (usually in the informal sector) can enjoy significant cost and efficiency advantages over centralized provision. However, if coverage, accessibility and quality are to be maintained at acceptable levels, private suppliers must be supervised by the government and operate within a framework controlled by the State.
