Joining Forces for Better Water Services
Based on the World Bank’s Global Solutions Group report, “Joining Forces for Better Services: When, Why, and How Water and Sanitation Utilities Can Benefit from Working Together.” The video introduces the report and toolkit resources that provide recommendations for successful aggregation. The recommendations are based on evidence and observed experiences rather than on theoretical considerations; and sometimes the advice runs counter to conventional wisdom with regard to aggregation practices.
Romania: Inside the Aggregation of Raja Constanta
The aggregation of the Romanian water utility Raja Constanta was meant to improve performance, environmental standards, and efficiency. The expansion of the service area extended to both rural and urban areas, and ultimately 278 million Euros from the EU helped make much-needed infrastructure upgrades. The scope was comprehensive, covering both water and wastewater through production, distribution, collection, and treatment. Initially, aggregation was perceived as a top-down takeover of water services, and some localities were opposed to the design and especially the tariff increases. Ultimately, as leaders aligned local and national interests, the reform became more popular. And it set the stage for modern services for the next generations of Romanians.
