Manila Water Company, Inc. (Manila Water) operates in Metro Manila’s east service zone, home to 6.1 million people. Manila Water’s inclusive business model creates partnerships with local government units and community-based organizations to include communities in the design and implementation of water supply systems. For instance, by visibly placing water meters in public areas, the community can regulate itself as water use and fees become more transparent. As a result, 99% of customers in this region have 24-hour water availability and customers now pay 20 times below per cubic meter rates previously charged by private water vendors.

Sociedad de Acueducto, Alcantarillado y Aseo de Barranquilla (AAA)
AAA was the first company established under an innovative policy framework for the water and sanitation sector in Colombia. Called the “mixed capital model,” this framework encourages public-private cooperation to expand coverage in poorer municipalities not effectively served by traditional public utilities. AAA began providing water, sanitation, and solid waste management services to the city of Barranquilla, in northern Colombia, in 1993 with an exclusive 20-year concession that was later extended for another 20 years. The company has since expanded into 12 other municipalities.
