Summary: 'I am most impressed by the range and profile of the topics and contributors. There is a growing awareness that solving water and sanitation problems involves more than pipes and valves - human behaviour and institutions are important components of the package'. Sandy Cairncross London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine UK 'This book will be very timely...The emphasis of the book is absolutely correct linking the technologies to the sociocultural political economic and planning aspects of water and sanitation services'.
