Pour des services pérennes : le role crucial des dépenses de renouvellement et de réhabilitation pour assurer des services d'AEPHA durables

A dearth in available data, methodologies and analyses in understanding the full life-cycle costs of maintenance in planning is among the major challenges faced by the water and sanitation sector. This often results to systems failure, overly-expensive investments, and serious disruptions in service delivery and access to water. This briefing note introduces the concept of capital maintenance expenditure (CapManEx) as a potential way forward to filling this gap. It is a valuable resource for policymakers, practitioners, donors and researchers and ‘...clarifies the concept of CapManEx relative to capital expenditure (CapEx) and operating expenditure (OpEx), outlines reasons to investigate these cost classifications and addresses some challenges in collecting and using the data.’

Abstract

A dearth in available data, methodologies and analyses in understanding the full life-cycle costs of maintenance in planning is among the major challenges faced by the water and sanitation sector. This often results to systems failure, overly-expensive investments, and serious disruptions in service delivery and access to water. This briefing note introduces the concept of capital maintenance expenditure (CapManEx) as a potential way forward to filling this gap. It is a valuable resource for policymakers, practitioners, donors and researchers and ‘...clarifies the concept of CapManEx relative to capital expenditure (CapEx) and operating expenditure (OpEx), outlines reasons to investigate these cost classifications and addresses some challenges in collecting and using the data.’
