This publication presents the issues linking wetlands and WASH (drinking water supply, sanitation and hygiene) in a concise manner. First, it provides the baseline information that sets out how WASH provision and wetland conservation are connected. Then it explains why these linkages are vital and how they can be better managed. Finally, it provides a set of principles for sector professionals to guide the way forward to integrate wetland management and WASH approaches. These principles and management precepts can bring clear benefit to the health and development of people in rural, peri-urban and urban areas. And - of primary importance - such benefits can be achieved without compromising ecosystem functioning [preface text].
