Abstract: This dissertation comprises of three empirical studies that look at the distribution of water services by the public utility and private vendor water supply system in Kathmandu, Nepal. The first is a study on the distributional equity of the piped water supply in Kathmandu. The second looks at the equity impacts of the private water market. The final examines the market structure and efficiency levels of the private water vendors. Looking at the demand and supply sides of the public and private water systems, the results reveal a state and market failure in water service delivery. There is a pressing need to address the unequal outcomes in terms of access to, and consumption of, water between the poor and non-poor households. While vendors play an important role in the bridging the water deficit, there is a need to regulate their operations to enhance competitiveness and efficiency in their business.
