Abstract
"Asian water utilities have their work cut out for them. They are expected to provide water supply and sanitation services to Asia’s 4 billion people but are perpetually overwhelmed by challenges contributing to poor service — from artificially low tariffs to staff incapacity to insufficient budgets for infrastructure development. Delivery of sustained world class service will require considerable help from partners. Mr. Arjun Thapan of the the Asian Development Bank (ADB) shares the institution’s experience in making successful public-private partnerships."
