Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most water and sanitation facilities used by households or operated by small-scale enterprises were built without external support. This shows there are alternatives to the large centralized conventional systems. More importantly, small-scale solutions have proven to be cost effective. Implemented in large numbers, they can boost health, improve agricultural production and generate local business all at the same time. That is why large-scale dissemination of these technologies is crucial. Smart technologies like this help tackle poverty immediately. Capacity building in both software and hardware is equally important to success-not only for users and institutions, but also for small and medium-sized enterprises. This booklet on water gives examples of innovations such as the use of sunlight to purify water, effective low-cost water filters, low-cost drip irrigation and locally produced hand pumps that are five times cheaper than imported pumps. By using these technologies, poor rural families can double or even triple their annual income. The book is designed as a source of inspiration, rather than a how to manual.This publication is a co-production of NWP, Practica, IRC, Simavi, Agromisa, NCDO, Aqua for All, Partners for Water.Also available in French and English.
