This book is about the conflicts, dialogues and negotiations underway in peri-urban areas of many cities in the South. It is about how people and communities without good access to water and sanitation services in these areas depend upon alternatives to conventional service delivery from utilities, and how these arrangements can be supported. It reports on research conducted in Cochabamba, Bolivia; Chennai, India; and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
