Practical guidelines demonstrating how water supply and sanitation projects in rural and peri-urban areas can be designed to meet user demand. The aim is to improve the use and sustainability of the services provided. Book 1 is intended for engineers, social facilitators, financial specialists and project managers, implementing water supply and sanitation projects. It introduces the concept of demand and shows how it can be used as a practical design tool at different stages of the project cycle. A number of case study examples, checklists and schematic illustrations are included. Book 2, designed primarily for policy makers and planners, investigates the wider policy implications of designing to meet demand. It focuses on what needs to be done to facilitate the transition from a supply-led to an effective, poverty sensitive demand responsive approach. Book 3, describes, for a wide audience how to design, implement and scale-up poverty sensitive, demand responsive approaches.
