MEHROTRA, S. and MOREL, A., 2003. Enabling small-scale water providers in Kibera. IN: Harvey, P. (ed). Towards the millennium development goals - Actions for water and environmental sanitation: Proceedings of the 29th WEDC International Conference, Abuja, Nigeria, 22-26 September 2003, pp. 255-258.
The small-scale providers are significant actors in the
provision of services to the urban poor. This paper focuses
on preparing pragmatic tasks to enable the water providers
operating in informal settlements and deals with the issues
of price, quality and abstraction. It is conceived in the
context of the present government reforms in Kenya and
addresses the water needs of the urban poor. This is also
part of the present interest of the Water and Sanitation
Program (WSP)- Africa that is working with clients to find
pragmatic ways to achieve the Millennium Development
Goals in Africa.
