"This welcome addition to the literature on water governance is a timely, thorough, and practical set of assessments of management challenges facing water service providers around the world. The diverse set of case studies, many of which focus on reforms to water supply provision, will be of interest to students and practitioners alike." KAREN BAKKER, Professor/Canada Research Chair, Director of the Program on Water Governance, The University of British Columbia "The anthology makes a very useful contribution to speed up the slow political awakening of reaching universal water services coverage: The lack of water services is in most cases not due to shortages of water, money and technologies, it is rather about poor governance. It provides many different insights from various cultural and political contexts and outlines and explains current changes in the governance architectures of water supply and sanitation." DR. HAKAN TROPP, Director, Water Governance Facility, Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI)
