In 1993 the World Bank assisted the Ministry of Water and Irrigation of Jordan in updating areview of the water sector, and thus began the process of Private Sector Participation (PSP) inservice provision to improve the efficiency of the water sector and wastewater services. In thisarticle, the privatisation of water and wastewater services is examined from the perspectives ofstakeholders (input) and consumers (output). The goal is to assess the changes that have beentaking place to date in relation to the principles of good governance. The results from interviewswith stakeholders and from consumer questionnaires show that the privatisationprocess has to date shown only a few signs of ‘good’ governance. Despite the range of stakeholdersinvolved, the state remains responsible for designing a good-governance approach thatis responsive to the concerns and interests of all stakeholders.
