Infrastructure Asset Management (IAM) is a series of systematic and coordinated management practices that help optimise performance while minimising costs and risk of asset failure.

There are few good examples of IAM from the rural water sub-sector of developing countries, although IAM is critical for sustaining services. Even in resource constrained environments, adoption of simplified IAM principles can increase cost-effectiveness and reduce interruptions in service.
