This book comprises two parts that attempt to explain the political economy of water pricing reforms. The three sections of part 1 provide the theoretical and empirical foundation to the approach of this book. Section A of part 1 provides a theoretical framework that emphasizes the link between property regimes and pricing regimes, address the power and influence between and within water resource management organizations, and demonstrate the importance of asymmetric information for the implementation of efficient pricing reform. Section B of part 1 demonstrates the applications of various political economy concepts in the evaluation of water pricing reforms. Main issues include the need to design the reform to account for the existing institutional and political setup, and the advantage of either having a broad agenda for the reform or combining two reforms that address similar issues of economic efficiency. Section C of part 1 addresses various political economy issues of urban water pricing reforms. This section also addresses the equity and social preferences of various segments of society affected by the tariff structure. Part 2 is a collection of five country case studies that individually and collectively attempt to support the framework and empirical evidence in part 1.
