  12. 12. achieving the MDG goals </li></li></ul><li>Private Water Operators in Uganda – a short overview <br />Background<br />In Uganda, bigger towns are managed by the parastatalNational Water & Sewage Company , NWSC, usually referred to under the name “National Water”.<br />Smaller towns, though, are generally managed<br />by Private Water Operators on the base of<br />Management contracts with the Local <br />Water Authority.<br />At present, Private Water Operators manage<br />water in 84 small towns throughout Uganda<br /><ul><li> including the former war zone areas</li></ul> in the north<br /> and in the troubled eastern part<br />Almost all PWOs are organized in the Association of Private Water Operators (APWO).APWO was formed as a platform in 2002 with eight member companies and has now 21 PWO under her umbrella. <br />
  13. 13. Background<br />The number of PWOs and towns managed by them have increased significantly in the last years<br />This trend will continue due to high population growth - <br />rural growth centers become towns.<br />
  14. 14. “Contract Management” is the basis for the work of PWOs<br />Background<br />MWE<br />LocalGov’t<br />The relation between the<br />Ministry and the water <br />authorities is determined <br />in a performance contract.<br />The duties of the Water Authority and the PWO is defined in a <br />management contract.<br />(= infrastructure remains<br />with government)<br />PWO<br />Customer<br />Both contracts set the framework<br />for the relationship between PWO and customer.<br />

  23. 23. Data Analysis<br />Performance Indicators: Access to safe water I<br />In the last years, substantial improvements were seen in the extension of pipelines (2009: 83 km).<br />Accordingly, the number of<br />total connections raised.<br />Active Connections are about<br />84% of total connections on<br />average.<br />
  24. 24. Performance Indicators: Access to safe water II<br />Data Analysis<br />As the graphic demonstrates, also the delivery of water has significantly increased<br />In the last years. At present, PWOs provide about 3 million liters for the public.<br />Water supply (in million liters)<br />
  25. 25. Data Analysis<br />Performance Indicators: Reporting<br />Reporting is essential for providing a good information base for decision making on all levels, including the Ministry. In the past, this has been a great challenge.<br />In 2001, only 36% of towns have reported at least once in a year. In 2009 this<br />number is up to 85%<br />
  26. 26. Data Analysis<br />Performance Indicators: Revenue Management I<br />The last years have also brought a significant reduction of the average cost of producing water<br />(from 2.057 UGX per m3 in 2006 to 766 in 2009).<br />
