bookposted on 21.03.2012, 14:39 by Andrew Cotton, M. Sohail (Khan), W.K. Tayler
This manual investigates the extent and nature of the involvement of low-income urban communities in the provision of their local infrastructure. It also provides guidance for policy-makers and professional staff of urban government, development agencies, non-government organisations, and small to medium enterprises for promoting increased involvement of communities in the procurement of neighbourhood (tertiary level) infrastructure. Cases relating to water supply, sanitation, drainage, access, paving, street and security lighting, solid waste removal, and community buildings are examined.
