Substantially reducing the number of people who lack access to clean water and safe sanitation is one of the key Millennium Development Goals. This book argues and demonstrates that this can only be achieved by a better integration of technical and social science approaches in the search for improved organization and delivery of these essential services. It describes how technological approaches and techniques have been developed for the proper design, planning, construction and operation of service units and systems. At the same time, it makes clear that policies are part of the overall process of governance, including the establishment and enforcement of legal and institutional frameworks, and that services must increasingly meet standards of ecological sustainability and rising user expectations. The book is divided into two parts: the first reviews theoretical and conceptual issues, including the diversity of organizational and institutional options for the governance and management of water and sanitation services. The second section presents a number of country or regional case studies, each one chosen to highlight a particular problem, approach or strategy. These case studies are drawn from Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe, covering a wide range of socio-economic and political contexts.
