Abstract

The disparities in performance among African countries in terms of access to water and sanitation call for an examination of factors that determine the effectiveness of development aid in these sectors. On this basis, the African Development Bank’s (AfDB) Water and Sanitation Department (OWAS) and its Development Research Department (EDRE) have initiated a study on “Development Aid and Access to Water and Sanitation in sub-Saharan Africa”.
