Access to water, sanitation and electricity is as critical to social development as education and health services. Many developing countries continue to suffer from lack of access, affordability and sustainability of utilities services, which remain essential social policy objectives of utility sector reforms.

This book focuses on three inter-related mechanisms—policy and institutional design options, innovations in regulation and contracts, and the role of stakeholders in utility governance—to improve access, affordability and sustainability of water and electricity services. The main objective is to provide advice enabling policy makers to integrate social policy goals as explicit elements of utility reforms.

This title is part of the New Frontiers of Social Policy series. In most developing countries, the mixed record of state effectiveness, market imperfections, and persistent structural inequities has undermined the effectiveness of social policy. TheNew Frontiers of Social Policy Series, edited by Anis A. Dani,examines issues and approaches to extend the boundaries of social policy beyond conventional social services toward more developmental policies and institutions for improving equalityof opportunity and social justice in developing country contexts.
