The guidelines, presented in two volumes, aim to assist with identification of principal socio-economic issues and to suggest ways of improving the implementation process, so that designers fully understand the background to a development and the needs of the users. Designers are then enabled to commission necessary further work and investigations as appropriate.
Volume 2 summarises the results of thirteen collaborative field studies of small-scale performance in Zimbabwe, Kenya and Egypt. A brief summary of the methods used in the investigations is presented along with brief accounts of the characteristics and performance of individual schemes.
