Given the limited capacity of the public sector in Bolivia to provide basic services and infrastructure, within the metropolitan area of Cochabamba multiple of neighborhood organizations develop practices and strategies aimed at self-management of different services, including water supply for human consumption.
Strategies around self-management of the water service are developed by a series of small-scale local operators, small neighborhood organizations whose main purpose is to guarantee access to water services through the administration of local water systems and networks. Their actions allow equitable and permanent access to the water, however, these strategies become urban fragmentation where strong processes of social dislocation, loss of solidarity between neighbors and the division of the city into hundreds of fragments take place.
