Barriers and Conditions for the Involvement of Private Capital and Enterprise in Water Supply and Sanitation in Latin America and Africa: Seeking Economic, Social, and Environmental Sustainability (PRINWASS)

PRINWASS was an international research project that critically examined cases of privatization of water and sanitation services in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Kenya, Mexico, and Tanzania. It also included studies of water and sanitation services from Finland, Greece, and the United Kingdom for comparative reasons.
