Toolkits for Private Participation in Water and Sanitation (World Bank, 1997): A government that has decided to involve the private sector in the provision of water and sanitation can choose from many ways of doing so. Which are feasible, and which of these best fits local circumstances, will vary from country to country—and from city to city.
