In Cameroon, network water supply coverage is estimated at less than a third of the urban population. With the support of the World Bank and other agencies, the government of Cameroon took a significant step to reform the urban water sector, delegating the service provision to an international private operator. The public-private partnership approach incorporates an output-based aid scheme aimed at addressing the cost of connection fees for low-income households.
