Accountability and transparency are two of the 10 key dimensions found to significantly affect the viability of water and sanitation services in developing economies. In water service delivery, accountability has various delegated layers with delegated management. Complementary to that is oversight i.e. monitoring compliance with laws, regulations, procedures and contracts. Transparency is a prerequisite for accountability, with clear and open avenues for information-sharing provided by elected officials and other stakeholders being a basic requirement for compliance with this regulation.

Si les contraintes de la régulation peuvent avoir un impact majeur sur l'action menée dans le cadre des partenariats tri-sectoriels 3, les acteurs impliqués accordent rarement la priorité à cet aspect du projet. Quant aux instances de contrôle, elles ne comprennent pas toujours l'intérêt d'une coopération avec les partenariats locaux axés sur l'approvisionnement en eau et l'assainissement dans les quartiers populaires. Basé sur l'expérience tirée des projets-pilotes BPD 4, le présent rapport plaide pour un dialogue plus ouvert entre les instances de régulation et les partenariats. Il s'agit pour les premières de prendre conscience de l'importante contribution que les partenariats pourraient apporter à l'orientation de la régulation en faveur des plus pauvres. Les seconds doivent pour leur part apprécier pleinement l'impact de la régulation sur leur action afin d'en optimiser les résultats.

Este artículo ofrece un resumen de los cambios aparecidos en los enfoques de las Alianzas Público-Privadas (APP) del sector del agua y saneamiento. Las entrevistas mantenidas con 21 profesionales, partícipes activos en este campo, han servido de base para este análisis. Su objetivo se centra en cuatro áreas: los contratos, la regulación, la financiación y la participación de las partes interesadas. Obviamente, el uso de las entrevistas como metodología presenta ciertas limitaciones, pero nuestra meta ha sido determinar, según las percepciones de los expertos, hacia dónde se dirigen las APP.

As a supplement to The Partnership Paperchase, this piece aims to promote a greater understanding of how different accountability mechanisms can be represented through careful attention to partnership practices and documentation.

This paper attempts to unpack the term accountability specifically with regard to partnerships; focusing on understanding compliance, transparency and responsiveness. This short paper supplements the thinking in The Partnership Paperchase (BPD, 2004) that looks specifically at the triggers, purpose and structure of partnership agreements by way of reviewing partner incentives and motivations.

Power-balanced partnerships’ and ‘shared incentives’ are two of 10 key dimensions necessary for ensuring a PPP’s viability. Different organisations generally interact with each other through either stated or unstated hierarchies. Such hierarchies can manifest themselves through funding or oversight arrangements, moral suasion or on the basis of knowledge and information. Partnerships need to find ways to ensure greater horizontal accountability, recognising and respecting the contribution, constraints and incentives for each partner. Contracts and renegotiation of contracts need to be framed around win-win arrangements that do not appear to unduly favour any one partner. The guidance in this document should help to redress imbalances.

L'objet de ce rapport est d'étudier le recouvrement des coûts dans les 8 projets pilotes du groupe Eau et Assainissement qui sont en cours en Afrique du Sud, en Argentine, en Bolivie, en Colombie, en Haïti, en Indonésie, et au Sénégal. Les enseignements que l'on peut tirer du déroulement de ces projets constituent une riche source d'informations sur la mise en place de programmes Eau et Assainissement pour les populations défavorisées. L'objectif du BPD consiste donc à déterminer si un partenariat entre le secteur public, le secteur privé et la société civile facilite ou non le recouvrement des coûts dans les projets pilotes. Le recouvrement des coûts n'a à aucun moment été envisagé comme un indicateur de réussite des partenariats et les projets-pilotes ne prévoyaient pas, dans l'ensemble, le recouvrement de la totalité des coûts (investissement et exploitation). Il ne s'agit donc pas ici d'évaluer chaque projet en fonction de son taux de recouvrement mais plutôt de tirer les enseignements des diverses approches adoptées. La diffusion des acquis devrait bénéficier non seulement aux projets BPD eux-mêmes (qui sont pour l'essentiel toujours en cours) mais aussi à une audience plus large.

La rentabilité des projets d'eau et d'assainissement est un facteur essentiel à leur pérennisation.
