Small-Scale Water Providers in Kenya: Pioneers or Predators?
There are two main schools of thought about the role of small-scale private water providers. Proponents view them as pioneers and gap-fillers, supplying water where utilities are not providing it adequately. Sceptics argue that they are predators who charge high prices and supply poor quality water. This UNDP study examines which argument holds true in the urban and peri-urban areas of Kenya.
