Abstract

This book is one of the main outputs of a three-year project which has gathered and synthesised knowledge from around the developing world not only on peri-urban water and sanitation but also on periurban areas of metropolitan regions and the people who live and work in them. This includes information collected specifically for the project in peri-urban localities of five metropolitan regions: Chennai (India), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), Cairo (Egypt), Mexico City (Mexico) and Caracas (Venezuela). It also draws on a small number of experiences and innovative peri-urban interventions in different countries. The content of the book is the result of close collaboration with the five project partners in the case study areas and consultation with a broad range of people in over twenty countries, ranging from urban professionals and practitioners to engineers, politicians, academics, staff from aid agencies and national and international non-governmental organisations and, perhaps most importantly, peri-urban poor women and men. The book offers 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.
