In Ouagadougou, there are structured, formal areas of housing, as well as unplanned settlements on the outskirts of the city.

The national company (ONEA), responsible for  the city’s water supply, only serves planned and structured settlements, where the service offer includes water supplied through a household connection or standpipe. The innovative solution for the unplanned settlements on the other hand involves extending the water supply network and delegating the management of the water supply service to private operators.
