Conclusion report from a two year study project. The research has highlighted four areas of fundamental concern that need to be addressed if the new arrangements between governments, business and civil society are to work: capacity building for reform and regulation; institutional reform; people and participation; costs and conditionalities. A total of 14 case and desk studies were made, covering a variety of experiences in Argentina, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Brazil, England and Wales, The Philippines, Mexico, Ghana, Nepal, South Africa and the United States (Washington DC). WaterAid concludes that a Multi-Stakeholder Review of private sector participation is essential to answer the question of how best private sector participation will benefit the poor, and in order that a set of guidelines may be developed, to which all stakeholders can adhere to.
