This study responds to calls within GIZ to extend its considerable expertise in pro-poor regulation, which to date has largely centred on improving access to water services in urban low-income areas. Rights-based global commitments to addressing the persistent access gap between urban and rural areas have prompted a fresh look at the potential role of regulation. Guided by a review of the literature and expert insights, this study examines eight country case studies to explore the question of regulatory oversight for rural water supply services in the context of widely pledged universal service aspirations. Regulation is deliberately interpreted as a set of functions and competencies and a dynamic process involving providers and consumers as active participants.
