The Mandalay City Development Committee (MCDC) is facing severe challenges in improving its water service coverage. It is also facing mounting financial losses. Athena and the International Growth Centre's assessment looked at the demand for water service across six townships and the expectations among residents. The findings of this study will play a key role in influencing the decisions that MCDC takes to expand Mandalay's piped-water supply network and improve its financial viability. The original policy brief was published on the IGC's website, here.
