This paper elaborates the various linkages between different sanitation options and water resources. In addition, it drafts two principal ways in which the management of these linkages can be carried out. Firstly, the authorities responsible for sanitation (often local governments) need to engage with water resource management institutions which are currently being established in many countries. Secondly, principles of IWRM can be more consistently applied in the sanitation sector. A number of organisations have turned IWRM principles into more practical guidelines which can be applied to sanitation. These approaches are not mutually exclusive; in fact they need to reinforce each other in order to position sanitation more effectively into IWRM initiatives. (Author's abstract)
