Determinants of users’ willingness to contribute to safe water provision in rural Uganda
In the context of recent devolution processes in Uganda, operation and maintenance of drinking water infrastructure still pose a major challenge. Given the importance of water user fees and local collective action for operation and maintenance, it is paramount to consider factors influencing the users’ willingness to contribute. Based on 802 structured household interviews, this article looks into the link between willingness to contribute and actual contribution and presents variables influencing users’ willingness to contribute to water provision. The variables demonstrated by the logistic regression model to increase the likelihood of users’ willingness to contribute are categorized as institutional, bio-physical and demographic ones.
