TRENDS FOR REFORM POLICIES

1.National water policy (regulation, planning, policy enforcement) in Mali is 100% under control in the whole rural and urban sectors; strong capacities are present;
2.The main institutional action should be clarification and improvement between financial institutions and operators; contracted commitments should have to be clarified;
3.Decisions makers would take advantage of a stronger care of subscribers ; all the more as higher service prices are foreseen: water policy can not remain only on EDM prices;
4.The most promising way is the local authorities’ one; following the National decentralisation policy promotion.
