Detailed Description

Sanitation is one of the most basic infrastructure services and one which many poor communities find themselves unable to afford. In most countries, the demand for sewerage greatly exceeds the resources available to provide it. There are, however, ways in which conventional schemes can be modified - or new schemes planned - so that the costs both of construction and of maintenance can be brought within the reach of more people.

This handbook describes these schemes and suggests objective methods of prioritizing communities' needs for sewerage. It surveys the planning, selection, design, management and maintenance of community schemes, and provides technical and financial suggestions on cost-effective practice and procedures. Non-conventional options are discussed as well as the conventional approach to sewerage design and implementation.
