In 2015, SECO undertook a Review of Success Stories in Urban Water Utility Reform. Key tables and diagrams from the Review are presented in this document – forming a tool for analysis and dialogue.

This tool offers guidance to stakeholders on where a utility is located in its development or reform process, on successful reform paths, and on accommodating the political context of the utility. The tool can support a structured dialogue amongst the stakeholders in a utility reform process, the formulation of a utility-specific reform strategy, and the monitoring of reforms. The tool is to be used in light of the findings of the Review.
