This note provides guidance to World Bank Group staff on assessing the suitability of available options for public-private roles in the provision and financing of water supply and sanitation, and the main considerations in choosing among these options. It cautions against one-size-fits-all prescriptions, recognizing the variations in circumstances among developing countries. The note links the various public-private options with appropriate World Bank Group instruments, including project-specific, sector-wide, and broader interventions.
