Listening to those working with communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America to achieve the UN goals for water and sanitation
This publication compiles the views and opinions of a large number of people who have been very closely involved in and affected by water and sanitation problems.The overall conclusion of this compilation is that the traditional top-down methods for providing water and sanitation in poor communities of the developing world have not been successful in reaching out to all. Furthermore there is concern that the UN the water and sanitation Millennium Development Goals are unlikely to be achieved if just more of the same flawed methods are to be applied. At the core of that failure has been the attempt to "deliver" solutions from the outside to communities who have had no involvement in, or ownership of, the process.
