    Private Sector Participation in the Ugandan Water Sector

    A review of 10 years of private management in small town water systems

    This working paper reviews the first decade (2001-11) of Uganda’s pioneering private sector participation (PSP) model for small town water supply. The number of towns under the PSP model has steadily risen from only 15 in 2001-02 to over 90 in 2010-11 with a combined population of over 1.5 million. In evaluating the impact of this development, this working paper aims to guide further reform within Uganda, and to inform other countries considering similar PSP approaches.

    Engaging Local Private Operators in Water Supply and Sanitation Services

    Initial lessons from emerging experience in Cambodia, Colombia, Paraguay, The Philippines, and Uganda

    This paper examines the experience of developing local private sector participation (PSP) in small and medium-size towns in Cambodia, Colombia, Paraguay, The Philippines, and Uganda. The paper, which reviews schemes supported by the World Bank, summarizes information on the contracts and the selection process, extracts lessons learned to date from the cases, and recommends follow-up activities to address some key issues and fill gaps that were identified in the course of the study. An overarching lesson from this study is that innovation and adaptation are essential to the successful introduction of local PSP. Designing interventions that include a process of innovation, adaptation, and refinement is the first step in ensuring that...

    Lessons Learned from Implementation of a Successful PPP Program: #2 The Building Blocks of a Successful PPP Program

    GET FiT Uganda is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) program managed by KfW in cooperation with the Ugandan Government. The program leverages commercial investment in small-, and medium sized Renewable Energy (RE) projects in Uganda. Public-Private Partnership (PPP) programs resulting in successful enabling frameworks for private investments in Renewable Energy (RE) are few and far between. In order to prove successful, the framework must be built from the bottom-up. This Lessons Learned briefing note outlines how GET FiT Uganda put in place the appropriate “building blocks” of a successful program and how the GET FiT approach can inform future efforts in other countries.

    Lessons Learned from Implementation of a Successful PPP Program: #3 Program Implementation

    GET FiT Uganda is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) program managed by KfW in cooperation with the Ugandan Government. The program leverages commercial investment in small-, and medium sized Renewable Energy (RE) projects in Uganda. GET FiT Uganda has created an enabling framework for renewable energy Independent Power Producers (IPPs), leveraging USD 450 million of investment and 158 MW of renewable power generation. These results were achieved through a combination of smart design and effective implementation arrangements. The day-to-day implementation has been instrumental to the program achieving highly ambitious targets, resulting in a positive, transformational change for the Ugandan electricity sector.

    Lessons Learned from Implementation of a Successful PPP Program: #4 Developer Engagrment

    GET FiT Uganda is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) program managed by KfW in cooperation with the Ugandan Government. The program leverages commercial investment in small-, and medium sized Renewable Energy (RE) projects in Uganda.The requirements for fulfilling the objectives and expectations of a PPP programme will be broadly similar irrespective of the industry. The key is understanding the marketplace and tailoring the programme to attract and select suitable candidate projects, and incentivise developers to fulfi l the objectives. This Lessons Learned briefing note outlines the approach and experiences of GET FiT Uganda in engaging the marketplace and overseeing the implementation of projects within time-bound targets.

    Lessons Learned from Implementation of a Successful PPP Program: #5 Complying With Environmental And Social Performance Standards

    GET FiT Uganda is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) program managed by KfW in cooperation with the Ugandan Government. The program leverages commercial investment in small-, and medium sized Renewable Energy (RE) projects in Uganda. Developers were often unable to contextualize and apply standards and regulations to their project-specific setting. Most developers gradually overcame limitations, but not without considerable additional efforts from both developers and the GET FiT Programme. Similar PPP programmes could benefit from modifications to programme design and implementation based on GET FiT Uganda experiences.
