The EU and WTO /GATS negotiations on water services liberalisation

Abstract

This report presents the results of a research study on the key relationships between the European Union's development policies, under the EU's Water Initiative, to provide equitable access of water services for the poor, and the EU's position to promote foreign private sector participation in the provision of water services in developing countries in the context of the GATS. This report then considers whether the 'protrade' and 'pro-development' objectives of EU policy in relation to the water sector are consistent and coherent.
The background and objectives of the commissioned study, research methodology, and research findings are presented.
