This report is part of a wider World Bank initiative to provide government officials and other stakeholders in the Middle East and North Africa—including civil society, service providers, potential financiers, and development practitioners—with the resources to better understand current conditions and consider approaches to regulating WSS, taking into account the benefits that could result and challenges that might be encountered. This desk
study is a first step intended to provide some basic information on selected countries that will serve as a foundation for determining where further study is required to fill in gaps and where support in the area of regulatory reform might be best concentrated. It takes a look at the status of regulatory institutions and practices in five countries and economies—the Arab Republic of West Bank and Gaza, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco and Iraq—which were chosen to include different historic and legal frameworks and fragile/conflict states, as well as more stable ones. On the basis of the information collected, some areas of further study are suggested for each country.
