Supplement to the book entitled Governance of water and sanitation services for the peri-urban poor: a framework for understanding and action in metropolitan regions. The documents offer a synthesis of scientific knowledge, institutional practices, people's aspirations and formal and informal norms and regulations that govern the supply and access to water and sanitation services by the peri-urban poor in metropolitan areas. Designed as an introduction to the book, this brochure introduces an argument in favour of needs-driven, as opposed to policy-driven, strategies and practices in water supply and sanitation for peri-urban areas. It shows how:
- Recognition of the unique characteristics of the peri-urban interface can affect water supply and sanitation decisions by public, private and community actors; and
- Improved governance through multi-stakeholder partnerships can lead to enhanced peri-urban water & sanitation services in metropolitan regions.
