The paper deals with the provision of infrastructure, water and sanitation in particular, for housing development in Nepal. The management of shelter infrastructure and services with active involvement of the people for better living environment is the major area of focus. The existing condition of shelter infrastructure is first presented. Some of the recent experiences of community involvement in the provision of infrastructure and services are then critically examined. The next section points out the advantages and relevance of community based programmes. Recognising the need to fully utilise community level resources and initiatives, the paper suggests for integrating such efforts with the total infrastructure network and concludes that community actions led to be encouraged at different levels in order to facilitate infrastructure provision.
