This document deals with research of one of a range of case studies that have been undertaken by Faisalabad Area Upgrading Project (FAUP). The context of this study is environmental improvement within low-income areas of Faisalabad City (Pakistan) and focuses on the integrated and inclusive approach to development so that sanitation facilities are available for all.
One of the key findings of the project is that it is possible to work through a government line department, be responsive to community demand, use government rules, regulations and staff and still work in an equitable and transparent partnership with community members.
Moreover, the study provides valuable insight into the strengths and weaknesses of the effort to improve the sanitation of Katchi-abadis and also suggests that the government of Pakistan's Devolution of power programmes provides an opportunity to expand the FAUP model to the rest of Faisalabad and Punjab. The case study also highlights the relationship between improving environmental sanitation conditions and health improvements in community members as well as transforming the behaviour of people.
