Overview of the industry

Zambia has been undergoing water sector reforms since the early 1990s. One of the major challenges were multiplicity of actors without a clear mandate. Developing the institutional framework took a very consultative process that involved all key stakeholders. The chief objective was to create new institutions which would be able to provide cost-effective and sustainable WSS services throughout Zambia.
Research has t that in Zambia. Commercial Utilities are the main providers of water and sanitation services in urban and peri urban areas. Currently there are about 6.696million people living in the CUs’ service areas, of which 1% are serviced by Private Schemes. These are companies that provide water supply and sanitation services primarily to their employees as a fringe benefit.
