In this page you can find some interviews with the Area Director Stéphane Saussier and Maria Salvetti (FSR Water Adviser) on issues related to the water service management, with a special focus on the implications of Public-Private Partnerships.

Forum: Idées neuves sur l’eau

Stéphane Saussier was interviewed by the Forum des idées neuves sur l’eau. This forum is an initiative of the French water operator Lyonnaise des Eaux. In the three videos (released in French), Prof. Saussier answers the following questions:

  • Pourquoi le débat sur les opérateurs privés et la gestion de l’eau en France resurgit-il régulièrement? (Why does the debate on private operators and water management in France come up regularly?)
  • Faut-il créer une autorité indépendante pour clarifier le rôle du public et du privé dans la gestion de l’eau? (Should we create an independent authority to clarify the role of the public and private sector in water management?)
  • Peut-on mettre en place de nouveaux partenariats entre le public et le privé pour améliorer le service de l’eau? (Could we set up new partnerships between the public and the private sector to improve water service?)

 

Public-Private Partnerships: an opportunity?

In the interview (in French) “Les partenariats public-privé: une opportunité? “, Stéphane Saussier describes what the Public–Private Partnerships (PPP) are, what the advantages as well as the costs of this opportunity might be and finally recommends good practices for their sustainable management.
