Willingness to charge and willingness to pay : the World Bank-assisted China rural water supply and sanitation program

Description of the World Bank-assisted rural water supply and sanitation (RWS) lending program in China where partial user-financing in RWS has already been implemented for many years by the government. The World Bank-assisted program, which started in 1985, built on this approach and developed a very effective cost recovery policy where the users finance up to 75% of the capital investment as well as the full operation and maintenance (O&M) cost. Financial and institutional arrangements, the regulatory system, tariff setting, and the ability to pay are discussed. The report ends with lessons learned and emerging issues.

Abstract

Description of the World Bank-assisted rural water supply and sanitation (RWS) lending program in China where partial user-financing in RWS has already been implemented for many years by the government. The World Bank-assisted program, which started in 1985, built on this approach and developed a very effective cost recovery policy where the users finance up to 75% of the capital investment as well as the full operation and maintenance (O&M) cost. Financial and institutional arrangements, the regulatory system, tariff setting, and the ability to pay are discussed. The report ends with lessons learned and emerging issues.
