Community Organizations for Water and Sanitation Services in rural areas of Argentina. A survey of their structure, organization, internal operation and problems and challenges in water management

The aim of this work is to carry out a survey of rural Community Organizations of Water and Sanitation Services (OCSAS) in Argentina, of the legal and institutional framework that supports them, as well as their structure, organization, and internal operations. Also, to study what are the criteria used by these organizations to define adequate water management and the problems and challenges they face. The results reflect that OCSAS territorial representation is majoritarian, while the problems they face are varied and include legal, institutional – normative, technical, quality, financial and gender aspects.
