Initiated in 2009, the observatory on water and sanitation services offers national online access to public data on the organisation, management and performance of services.
These elements are used to evaluate the economic, technical, social and environmentalquality of services on an objective, recognised basis, shared by all stakeholders in the water sector. In the long term, the observatory will thus go beyond simple reasoning in terms of the price of water and cover all the technical and financial issues related to services.
Using the observatory's data, this initial overview offers markers on the organisation, quality and price of water services and collective sanitation. It also clarifies the sustainable assets management issues facing services.
