Operation, maintenance and sustainability of services for the urban poor: Findings, lessons learned and case studies summary and analysis
bookposted on 22.03.2012 by M. Sohail (Khan), Sue Cavill, Andrew Cotton
Books are generally long-form documents, a specialist work of writing that contains multiple chapters or a detailed written study.
This book presents the preliminary findings of the case studies completed to date (in Pakistan, Sri Lanka and India). The report provides an assessment of the operation and maintenance status within the communities illustrated in the studies and has sought to highlight the success and failure of the different approaches. The report goes on to review both consumer (urban poor) perceptions and municipal performance of community based processes. Finally, general conclusions or lessons have been drawn out that will be useful when thinking about operation and maintenance in the planning and implementation of future projects.
