Abstract

Dwindling supplies of fresh water, tight government budgets, pressure from international agencies, and public demands for more inclusive domestic water and sewage infrastructure have boosted the private-sector participation (PSP) in water and sewage utility services around the world. My research focuses on how and why PSP in water and sewage utility services can be beneficial or detrimental to urban centers in Latin America by comparing the cities of São Paulo, Brazil, and Cochabamba, Bolivia.
