Water Supply and Sanitation Services for the Rural Poor
The Gram Vikas Experience
Fundamental to the process was a growing sense of empowerment, so that once the building was finished whole villages were ignited to drive their own development projects. This book describes how Gram Vikas engaged with new villages and carried out the programme, how costs were met by the households, government and donors, and the resulting impacts on health,education and livelihoods. Finally the question is asked: can this international award-winning approach be scaled - up to increase sustainable coverage of water and sanitation and combat poverty worldwide?
