Sustainable Business Models for Water Supply and Sanitation in Small Towns and Rural Settlements in Kazakhstan

image of Sustainable Business Models for Water Supply and Sanitation in Small Towns and Rural Settlements in Kazakhstan

This report assesses the Republic of Kazakhstan’s significant efforts to improve water supply and sanitation (WSS) services over the past 15 years, notably in terms of ambitious target-setting, implementation of a sound water tariff policy, and significant investment in the rehabilitation and development of relevant infrastructure. Generally speaking, the absence of updated data on WSS institutional development is a limiting factor for further policy and programme development in the field, including in Kazakhstan. The monitoring and evaluation system proposed in this report aims to help assess progress in the WSS sector and serve as a basis for any necessary corrective measures.

Review of business models in the water supply and sanitation sector and lessons learned from their application in the EU and EECCA

Although there is no universal “one size fits all” model for the management of WSS services, and a model successfully functioning in one country may not work in another, international experience provides important lessons for developing a country’s approach to WSS management. This section summarises the review of WSS management models in selected countries in Europe and Eastern European, Caucus and Central Asia (EECA). The review was part of Phase 2 of the Sustainable WSS Business Models for Small Towns and Rural Areas Project in Kazakhstan; its objective was to inform and facilitate the national policy dialogue on best possible models of institutional development of WSS in small towns and rural areas in Kazakhstan.
