This chapter provides information on planning and management in the water supply and sanitation sector, including targets for the sector, constraints to sector development, sector investment, costs and tariffs, and quality of service.

During the preparation phases of the Assessment 2000 report an effort was made to gather information on the performance and management of the water supply and sanitation sector in each country. This information included constraints to development, costs, tariffs, levels of investment and aspects of quality of service, such as continuity and water quality. Also included were approaches and institutional arrangements for managing the sector. The responses of individual countries will be presented in the JMP Databook 2000. This chapter provides an overview of the information collected.
