The contract is based on a co-construction upstream from the project. It has been tailored according to the governance challenges.The main features are :
>  Risk-sharing with definition of target performance to drive painshare / gainshare mechanism.
>  Unanimous principle-based decision-making on all key project issues
>  Integrated project team selected on the basis of best person for each position
In Adelaide, the 5th largest Australian city, Alliance contracting is being implemented on a large scale to the water and wastewater sector.
Early 2011, the Government of the State of South Australia has awarded SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT and its subsidiary, Degrémont, in partnership with Transfield Services, a contract to supply water and waste water services to 1.1 million inhabitants in the city of Adelaide and its surrounding area.

Water pollution and overuse have worsened in many places, and climate change is making water availability more unpredictable, with more frequent droughts and floods. These problems are compounded in the case of transboundary waters. International law requires states to cooperate over the sustainable management of these precious resources. However, transboundary water management raises major practical and political issues. Nations have addressed such issues by adopting and implementing treaties that govern interstate cooperation on specific international freshwaters. Yet most of the world’s transboundary waters still lack sufficient legal protection.

How can we make cities and countries less vulnerable to global climate change? This is a pressing question, especially in densely populated delta areas. There are enough policies, plans and ambitions. But many countries and cities are struggling to actually implement measures to reduce flood risks and safeguard fresh water resources. Often there is not enough sense of urgency and political commitment to build the required capacity and generate the necessary funds. A dialogue between stakeholders is needed. A DeltaDialogue that results in a (widely supported) DeltaPlan and generates new (public-private) DeltaPartnerships to finance and implement solutions.

The project to improve water supply services in ten communes of Burkina Faso was carried out by Eau Vive and partners from 2008 to 2011 with a budget of €850 000. In the context of decentralisation the project was divided into four components in an approach that aimed to build local capacities and governance as well as containing an infrastructure component, to help local authorities assume their new roles and responsibilities for water supply services.

1.    Initial capacity building with local authorities

2.    Setting up a water governance structure within the commune

3.    Construction work

4.    Operating contracts

SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT’s experience has proven that stakeholder engagement is not only a driver of reputation and license to operate but, above all, a key component of the  successful operation of water and sanitation services. Stakeholder dialogue is critical when it comes to defining services standards, pricing policies, or even CSR programs. In order to identify relevant issues and stakeholders to engage, it has developed a methodology and a software to help its managers to build their dialogue road map. While analyzing the local context, the tool allows to map the most critical issues to address and the most relevant stakeholders to engage,  with regard to these specific issues. Analyzing those maps then helps to build an action-oriented dialogue strategy that fits both with the operator’s and stakeholder expectations.
