Through the last decades, international cooperation has invested increasing resources on the issue of local governance with the aim of promoting and strengthening the capacities of local authority. In particular, the local governance of water services has been consolidated as a catalyst for local development to generate and implement policies and services that are better suited to the needs of different contexts.
