Peri-Urban Sanitation and Water Service Provision: Challenges and opportunities for developing countries

The network for Sanitation and Water Supply in Peri-Urban Areas (SanWatPUA) has prepared a compilation of factsheets on different aspects related to water and sanitation provision in peri-urban areas. This report (attached) is entitled Peri-Urban Sanitation and Water Service Provision: Challenges and opportunities for developing countries.
The different chapters highlight challenges and opportunities concerning sanitation and water supply in peri-urban areas of developing countries. Chapter 1 describes the particular features of periurban areas and highlights different challenges for improving sanitation and water supply. The following five chapters (2-6) deal primarily with opportunities for improvement concerning crucial aspects of sanitation and water supply in peri-urban areas. Finally, chapter 7 introduces gaming as an arena for learning and discussion about different solutions. In gaming, as well as in real planning and negotiations, the other chapters can be used for inspiration and as sources of information.

SanWatPUA is a Swedish network of experts established in 2010, that has focused on the synthesis and communication of scientific knowledge about the provision of sanitation and water to peri-urban areas in developing countries. The network aims to support innovation in peri-urban areas through knowledge dissemination on key areas for change. SanWatPUA has applied methods and tools to synthesize knowledge that is instrumental for practitioners in the planning and problem-solving of real-life situations.
