Asset management in rural South Africa. A case study of Amatole and Chris Hani district municipalities

Infrastructure asset management is a series of systematic and coordinated management practices that help maximize performance whilst minimising costs and associated risk. It can help water service providers and authorities ensure that services are maintained at the agreed level and that new services are provided according to strategic priorities. Even though basic asset management principles can increase cost-efficiency and help sustain services, they are not a common practice in the rural water sectors of developing countries. This case study looks at the implementation of asset management in two municipalities of South Africa.

Abstract

Infrastructure asset management is a series of systematic and coordinated management practices that help maximize performance whilst minimising costs and associated risk. It can help water service providers and authorities ensure that services are maintained at the agreed level and that new services are provided according to strategic priorities. Even though basic asset management principles can increase cost-efficiency and help sustain services, they are not a common practice in the rural water sectors of developing countries. This case study looks at the implementation of asset management in two municipalities of South Africa.
