Providing improved water supply to low-income urban communities is a difficult challenge faced by water utilities throughout Africa and Asia. This guide provides an introduction to available options for serving these communities. The guide draws on sector experience in general, and more particularly on WSUP’s extensive experience of implementing urban WASH programmes in sub-Saharan Africa and elsewhere.
This guide is aimed primarily at executive and technical staff in water utilities and related organisations, such as asset-holders and regulators. It will also be useful for WASH professionals working in governments, development agencies, funding agencies or civil society organisations.
