Recent decades have seen a package of governance reforms, such as decentralisation, the establishment of independent regulators and water resources authorities, and democratization of decision-making procedures, all impacting significantly on urban water management. However, the degree to which these reforms have actually been implemented and worked out in Latin American cities varies considerably. This report looks into governance arrangements in four Latin American cities: Belo Horizonte (Brazil), Cali (Colombia), Lima (Peru) and Tegucigalpa (Honduras).
