These guidelines draw primarily from experiences in Bangladesh and Pakistan. They result from literature surveys and from interviews, field visits and questionnaire surveys. A large range of wells have been looked at, from those still under complete government ownership and management to those totally developed, owned and managed under the private sector. In addition, information has been used from other countries in South-East Asia, primarily India, where appropriate to this study. The output is presented in two volumes. Volume I (this document) is a background document which includes this introduction, useful reference information in support of the guidelines, and wider conclusions and recommendations from the research carried out for this project. Volume I is designed to be an office based document covering wider policy issues and more general guidelines. Volume I is presented in 6 parts: - Introduction - Technical Feasibility - Affordability - Manageability - Associated Rural Development - Conclusions and Recommendations
