Recent trends and current status
Abstract:This chapter provides comparable data on recent trends and current performance of water supply and sanitation systems in EECCA. It draws on a set of indicators of both the technical and financial performance of water utilities. It discusses the specific challenges in rural areas, given that coverage rates tend to be much lower, with self‐provision, rather than piped networks, being an important form of supply. It elaborates on the consequences of inadequate service quality on health and the environment.
