This paper demonstrates that much of the benchmarking that takes place in the water sector today focuses on financial and technical performance, making it difficult for water operators to pursue broader social, political and environmental objectives. As an alternative this paper introduces the concept of ‘social efficiency’ to widen the scope of performance evaluation by adding new evaluation criteria that emphasize equity and promote ‘publicness’, informed by extensive field research in Africa and Latin America.
