The Dominican Republic’s Rural Aqueduct Decentralization Project [RADP] follows policy prescriptions informed by NIE. The changes of roles and relationships during the reform process can be understood as attempts to align the incentives of different actors more closely with the goals of the RADP: increased coverage and sustainability of water systems. While the RADP introduced new methods to work with communities and NGO’s, it didn’t address the underlying incentive systems of patronage politics and resource dependency.
