Abstract: This Briefing Note considers Small Water Enterprises in relation to the operation of water kiosks, identifying key components for their success and recommendations based on good practice. It is based upon findings from a project designed to identify and test options for improving water services to the urban poor. Phase 1 of the project included field work in Ghana, Kenya, Sudan and Tanzania to identify constraints, opportunities and strategies to supply acceptable water services to low-income customers living in informal settlements. The evident potential for improving services delivered by SWEs led on to Phase 2 of the project, in which research teams in Tanzania and Kenya further developed constructive working agreements with water utilities in Dar es Salaam and Nairobi.
