Financing capital maintenance of rural water supply systems: current practices and future options

This working paper provides case-study evidence on current practices around funding capital maintenance, including the levels of funding provided and the resulting impact on services. In addition, it seeks to quantify the range of capital maintenance expenditure required to provide a basic level of service. It also reviews potential approaches to improve the way in which the financing of capital maintenance of rural water supplies is organised. The approaches to financing capital maintenance reviewed in this working paper include regional pooled funds, insurances, pooled front-loaded and end-loaded external contributions. Case studies and examples are drawn from Latin America, Africa and Asia. [authors abstract]
