Water Supply in Azerbaijan: Moving Forward in the Right Direction
January 28, 2015

The efficient supply of potable water is one of the main preconditions for quality of life for every family and for the operation of businesses. In Azerbaijan, water is supplied both to household and commercial consumers by Azersu, the sole water supplier in Azerbaijan. The company has over one million customers, of which about 30,000 are businesses.

With support from USAID, Transparency Azerbaijan (TA) has monitored improvements in the supply of potable water under the Azerbaijan Partnership for Transparency project since 2011. TA has found several positive changes since it conducted an analysis in 2011 of the regulations and institutional mechanisms in this sector and submitted recommendations to Azersu and the National Anti-corruption Commission.
