In the context of the development focus of the RDP programme, particularly towards rural and peri-urban areas of South Africa, there arose a need for information on development options and approaches, particularly with respect to water supply and sanitation. The CSIR and various organisations had been producing guidelines which were often requested by various role players, and there was a need to expand the availability of guideline documents to cater for various role players. An additional motivation for the project was that a number of new role players were
entering the market and there was a need to orientate them to the various nonconventional technologies and approaches that are relevant to developing communities. In 1993 the Water Research Commission subsequently approved the commencement of the project for the compilation of additional guideline documents as set out in the proposal of the CSIR.
