Abstract

A review of willingness to pay studies in India found that although poor people were generally willing to pay for improved access to water and sanitation services this willingness is rarely translated into revised policy. So-called pro-poor pricing strategies appear to be advantageous to the non-poor and are therefore politically difficult to change.
