Amen!

I've always felt that governance and the service delivery model should drive how things are done.

...And I'm not just saying this - I have completed applied urban WASH governance research and have written endlessly about this.

So....since the lens of urban governance and municipal services provision is what you are arguing for, does that mean that there will be concerted efforts by donors to better understand enabling (or disabling, even!) environments, markets, and the effective short and long routes of provision and purchase-based accountability and agency that ultimately drive what access is for households?
