This report is based on the findings of a study conducted in December 1998 on Small Scale Independent Providers (SSiPs) of water and sanitation services in the Municipal Council of Monbassa (MCM). The theme of the study was on operations of the SSiPs in the low-income areas of the coastal town in Kenya. The study objectives were to : develop a greater understanding of the types of service providers and the scale of their operations; \ assess the comparative advantages of independent service providers and why the low-income turn to them for service provision; gain an understanding of the institutional and legal context in which SSiPs operate; identify SSiPs strengths and weakness and to evaluate the potential of further developing their activities; and identify of bottlenecks that hinder the development of SSiPs and recommend ways and means through which they can be overcome.
