Balancing equity and financial sustainability for the provision of safe water to all in small towns in Burkina Faso

Abstract

The Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the United Nations in September 2015 sets the goal of achieving universal access to safe water by 2030. This article focuses on the achievement of this goal in small towns where half the population of Burkina Faso will live in 2030 by addressing the question: under which conditions could universal and equitable access to privately managed water services be financially sustainable in 2047 small towns by 2030? The article shows that the access to safe water in an equitable way and for all in small towns is submitted to the switch to solar energy and the enforcement of a consistent price-cap regulation. Under these two conditions, water tariffs could be divided by two compared to today, with 70% of small towns population being supplied on premises and 30% through stand-pipes, compared to less than 20% being supplied by stand-pipes today.
