Water and Sanitation Services in Europe: Do Legal Frameworks provide for "Good Governance"?
The IHP-HELP Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science has published a report by Monica Garcia Quesada providing comparative analysis of governance in water services provision (sanitation and water supply) in six countries: England, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Scotland and Spain (link here).
The report develops an analytical framework to study and compare national governance mechanisms. To do so, the research analyses the national regulatory measures that ensure water governance concerning water tariff and customer standards setting. A list of 14 indicators for access to information, public participation and access to justice is employed to compare and contrast national legal mechanisms across the countries.
