This dissertation presents a comprehensive framework to analyze municipal water supply reforms in developing countries by adapting the institutional analysis and development framework (IAD) to this sector. It does so by providing a detailed description of all the meaningful components of the IAD framework that apply to municipal water reforms and also provides a structure to evaluate these reforms. It then applies the adapted framework to the municipal water reforms in Jakarta, Indonesia to get a fresh perspective on the situation there.
The application of the framework to Jakarta yields a number of findings, not widely discussed in the literature. For instance it becomes clear that the success of a system involving a diverse set of institutions requires a thorough understanding of the interactions between the different actors, not just a study of the actors themselves. Also, a variety of factors exogenous to the players—like biophysical factors, or the characteristics of the community or rules on the ground—often play crucial roles. These need to be considered while shaping policy. A number of such lessons have been presented in this dissertation.
Finally, this dissertation draws insights from this adaptation to Jakarta which can provide lessons to similar cases in the developing world.
