Understanding demand and funding for piped water supply in Mandalay


Project year: 2019 • Athena Infonomics

Purpose

To investigate actionable insights on improving water service coverage and the potential for tariff hikes to ensure financial sustainability

Activities

The Mandalay City Development Committee (MCDC) is facing severe challenges in improving its water service coverage. It is also facing mounting financial losses. In this context, MCDC called for actionable insights on improving its coverage and the potential for tariff hikes to ensure financial sustainability. Athena and the International Growth Centre’s assessment looks at the demand for water service across six townships and the expectations among residents.

Further information

The study includes a sample of 1480 households and small businesses and will also involve qualitative interviews with various stakeholders. This will help in understanding water usage patterns in the region. Factoring in the socio-economic challenges in the region, it also assesses the feasibility of additional funding mechanisms. The findings of this study will play a key role in influencing the decisions that MCDC takes to expand Mandalay’s piped-water supply network and improve its financial viability.
