Community run small-scale water systems play a critical role in supplying consumers in the peri-urban and rural areas of Kenya. The importance of these providers has been
recognized in recent reforms of the sector, which provide for a legal and regulatory framework for community based organizations to engage in water service provision outside
major towns and cities. However, these providers often experience problems that hinder their ability to provide reliable services to consumers and expand their coverage. [authors abstract]
