Chennai Workshop Report.
This document is a report on a workshop held in Chennai, India on Saturday 20 November, 2004. The objective of the Afternoon Workshop was to test a number of water demand management measures that could be applicable to the Chennai Case Study area. The means of achieving this was through rating and ranking exercises in which three groups with different perspectives (Technical, Economic and Community based) evaluated options and the possible impact of a selection of measures on the poor and vulnerable.
During the first afternoon Session, each group discussed eleven water demand management measures and then rated them against viability, ease of implementation and chance of success. Three measures were then selected for impact evaluation.
During the second Session, the three measures were examined by the three groups independently with respect to their likely impact on the poor and vulnerable members of the community in the Case Study area.
