Publication: Best Practice in Urban Water Supply Côte d'Ivoire's SODECI - Capacity-building for Better Service
SODECI (La Societe de Distribution d'eau de Cote d'Ivoire) is the Cote d'Ivoire's water supply agency. It has provided over 30 years of service in water supply starting with a lease contract which lasted for approximately 25 years. This was converted into a concession in 1987. The World Bank has been working in partnership with the agency through financing of investments in water supply. The agency's approach to management has been key to its success. Decentralization and delegation of power to a range of different departments for the management of various tasks constitutes effective management.
