This book explores the practical implementation of the multiple-use water services (MUS) concept in Nepal and India, focusing on community-level lessons and implications for scaling up the approach. Lessons are drawn from projects that attempted to move beyond the segregation of irrigation and domestic water systems to allow the poor to access water for domestic needs as well as enable income-generating vegetable production.
The MUS work in both countries included application of the learning alliance approach, allowing idea sharing at the national/state, district, and local levels. These community, NGO and partner efforts to integrate water resource use will inspire professionals to look at village water use and service delivery in new ways.
