In 2006–07, the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) initiated research to identify barriers to service delivery for the urban poor. The findings of the research have been presented in the Guidance Notes on Improving Water Supply and Sanitation Services to the Urban Poor in India. The Urban Global Practice Team of WSP decided to expand the ambit of this research to a global context as the learnings were relevant to experiences across Africa, Latin America, and East Asia and the Pacific.
The Guidance Notes are based on an in-depth research of various initiatives from across the world, including South Asian, African, Latin American, and East Asian and the Pacific countries and consultations with urban poor communities. This report is a documentation of this research and supports the Guidance Notes on Services for the Urban Poor. It is an extended version of a previous WSP publication, Global Experiences on Expanding Services to the Urban Poor.
