Publication: Lebanon - Social Impact Analysis for the Electricity and Water Sectors
This quick note, is based on the report 'Lebanon: social impact analysis for the electricity and water sectors', issued by World Bank's Middle East and North Africa region's social and economic development group in June 2009. The report considers implications for the consumer of current service provision and impending reforms in Lebanon's utility sector. It assesses: i) how different categories of households, and especially the poor, are affected by deficient electricity and water service; ii) the potential social impact of alternative reform scenarios, including tariff changes in the case of electricity and metering in the case of water; and iii) implications of better cost recovery measures in both sectors.
