Institutional framework of Egypt’s water supply and sanitation sector

Egypt has established a specific water sector regulator solely dedicated to monitoring service provision. Challenges reported in this set up include overlapping responsibilities, lack of clarity and the need to strengthen the regulator’s role (Mumssen and Triche 2017). The country has made concrete efforts since 2015 to establish the required institutional arrangements to enhance overall sector performance. These include establishing a dedicated management team in the Ministry of Housing, Utilities and Urban Communities, and tariff reforms to improve financial sustainability. A new Water Law clearly spells out mandates and strengthens the regulator and the regulatory framework. A capacity-development programme for the regulator was also developed.
