“Urban water and sanitation services succeed where agencies have transformed themselves into
corporate entities, or have adopted a corporate approach in their operations” – ADB Water Operational Plan 2011–2020 ADB Water Community of Practice: Knowledge Sharing Seminar Series

Corporatization of Water Utilities
2 May 2012, 9:00am to 4:00pm Learning Objective ADB committed in its Water Operational Plan to helping water and sanitation utilities to become more efficient. Corporatization does not necessarily mean privatization—but it does mean giving the utility autonomy and accountability to better manage its services to the public. By attending this seminar you will gain insights for designing projects that seek to enhance utility performance improvement through corporatization, discuss the steps in implementing corporatization and share experience with colleagues working on corporatization projects for the water sector. Knowledge sharing will be primarily through group discussion of actual cases.
