Abstract:

This document presents conclusions of five years of work devoted to the assessment of available technology and management options for the wide-scale implementation of community water supply systems. An examination of policy options for developing countries suggests that economic stability and growth can be enhanced if the rural and urban-fringe populations are adequately served with non-polluted water supplies. An adequate water supply is one of the basic needs of life, but is often lacking in developing countries. Not only has the rate of construction of improved water supply systems been slower than the target of complete coverage originally set under the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade, but also many of the schemes already completed are not in satisfactory operating condition. A sound investment strategy in this sector calls for low-cost and maintainable solutions to achieve wide-scale coverage of the rural and urban-fringe communities in developing countries.
