3. September 2014: Das private VersorgungsunternehmenManila Water hat, veröffentlicht von der Asiatischen Entwicklungsbank ADB, ein Buch herausgegeben, in dem es "reveals how change management was adopted by the company to transform the water utility into a world-class service provider. In this book, Manila Water tells its story - the story of a water utility’s amazing transformation that is anchored on tapping the unlimited potential of important yet often underappreciated corporate resources. This is the secret of Manila Water’s success. Within each and every employee's story, when told collectively, is Manila Water's secret told."
Aus der Ankündigung der ADB: "Thebook highlights the case of the Manila Water Company as a successful story of utility reform. It notes that Manila Water faced a number of challenges prior to emerging as a successful model for public-private-partnerships (PPPs). It includes chapters on: the water crisis and privatization; the PPP through a concession framework; the concession agreement; addressing the supply shocks and managing risks; corporate-style governance; enable; empower; excel; emerging challenges and issues; and conclusions. Emerging challenges identified in the book include: urbanization and increased population; regulatory risk; climate change; replicating the PPP model in top metro cities; and the internal challenge of developing new talent and leaders in the water sector. In order to address these challenges, the book highlights the importance of expanding wastewater services, addressing the gap between willingness-to-pay and the need for system improvements, considering creation of a regulatory office independent of Manila Water to reduce regulatory risk, addressing unforeseen events, including climate change-induced droughts and floods, and continuing to address barriers to expansion of Manila Water services to other urban zones around Manila.
