Urban water supply has been commercialized, paving the way for a more efficient and productive approach based on commercial necessities.
In order to regulate, monitor and improve the performance of the commercial water utilities, balance commercial requirements with consumer interest and guarantee an independent regulation of the water sector, the independent Energy & Water Utilities Regulatory Authority (EWURA) was established in 2006 supported by GIZ.
Improve regulation of commercialized water supply and sanitation authorities.
