Promising regulatory reforms in the water sector in algeria l.jpg
Promising regulatory reforms Water Supply:in the water sector in Algeria

  • The management of water supply and sanitation has been rationalized and centralized with the creation in 2001 of two independent water supply and sanitation agencies.

  • Municipalities have the possibility to delegate water supply to financially independent public operators “régie publique” (2005).

  • Private sector participation was legalized as early as 1995.

  • The first management contract was awarded in 2005 for the water supply of Algiers.

  • The tariff structure has been reformed. Tariffs are now progressive, set locally, with cost recovery objectives. Water metering practices have increased.


Decentralization trend and concession contracts in morocco l.jpg
Decentralization trend Water Supply:and concession contracts in Morocco

  • The major water producer and distributor, the National Office of Potable Water (ONEP) is legally and financially independent and does not longer receive subsidies.

  • Recent decentralization trend:

    • The water law of 1995 creates River Basin Organizations. Legally and financially independent, their mission is to finance local water investments through users’ fees “redevance” and lending.

    • Since 2002, municipalities have the full responsibility of water supply and sanitation services. They can operate directly or under a "regie publique" contract or delegate to ONEP or delegate to the private sector.

  • The first concession, for Casablanca, was awarded in 1997 to Lydec.

  • Tariffs are progressive and set locally. The effective pricing of water is emphasized in the water law of 1995.


Recent regulatory reforms in egypt l.jpg
Recent regulatory reforms in Egypt Water Supply:

  • Since 2004, all drinking water and sanitation entities of the country have been regrouped under one single Holding Company.

  • In practice, water supply administration in Egypt is highly centralized.

  • Operation and maintenance costs of water services are mainly funded by public sources.

  • Revenues cover only 40% of costs because of subsidies, high levels of leakage, and non-paying state customers.

  • Cost recovery problems and low tariffs discourage financial investors and private sector participation.


Successful public management in tunisia l.jpg
Successful public management in Tunisia Water Supply:

  • In Tunisia, the water and sanitation sector is totally public and is managed by two independent government agencies.

  • Impressive performance:

    • Very low rate of unaccounted for water: 18.2% in 2004.

    • Tunisian cities have usually continuous water supply.

    • The bill collection rate is very high: over 99%.

  • However, water management in Tunisia is highly centralized and very much politicized.

  • Problems of low tariffs set nationally and of high level of cross subsidies among customers: 90% of users pay water below the real economic cost.

  • Moderate private sector participation has been recently introduced in sanitation through service contracts and a BOT contract in Tunis.
