As part of neoliberal reforms to public service delivery, the corporatisation of water supply has been of increasing concern since the late 1990s. Typically, both promoters and detractors frame it within neoliberal theory: it is the next best (or worst) thing to privatisation, enabling the ostensibly independent, commercial and technical management...

This project proposes a comprehensive history of urban water supply development “from the South”, through a study of Colombia from 1900 to 2014. Until now, historical analyses of urban infrastructure have focused almost exclusively on high-income cities in Europe and North America. These studies testify to broad trends that are widely taken as universal: nationalization (or municipalisation) around the beginning of the 20th century, followed by large-scale infrastructure developments and service extension leading to universal coverage mid-century, and the decentralization and neoliberalization of governance from the late 1970s onward (Tarr & Dupui, 1988; Melosi, 2000). Colombian water supply history destabilizes the accepted trends in a number of ways, beyond unachieved universalization. The research has already shown decentralization to be an iterative as opposed to linear process, and that policies like corporatization, metering and full cost recovery have their roots in the 1920s rather than with neoliberalization in the 1980s (Acevedo, Furlong, & Arias, 2015). Understanding the roots of contemporary water supply challenges and how these have evolved over the long-term can help to develop more appropriate policy. This project is being conducted in collaboration with our partners at the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana (UPB) led by Professor Denisse Roca Servat as well as Tatiana Acevedo of the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education. Some of the data that we have collected is presented below.
