Abstract

This paper evaluates the potential for positive changes in household welfare and employment stemming from the institution of social businesses for water supply in peri-urban environments. 1 This analysis uses the experience of Grameen Veolia in the peri-urban space of Dhaka, Bangladesh as a key case for evaluating the concept of social business. The study uses interviews with Grameen Veolia employees, primary project documents, and secondary sources in the grey literature as evidence.
