The subject of this paper is the extent to which the benefits of urban water supply projects are capitalized into land values. Its focus will be the theoretical conditions necessary for such capitalization in a developing country context. In a later section of the paper, we present a brief anatomy of the kind of empirical approach which seems appropriate to test this model.
