The selection of appropriate technology is fundamental to the long-term success of any project. Project formulation in developing countries must carefully weigh the available fiscal, material and human resources to create a project well suited to the needs of the beneficiary. Simplicity in design and implementation will ultimately lead to increased understanding by the end user, thus increasing the opportunity for a reliable and sustainable solution. This paper shares the experiences of a Danida-funded sewerage and drainage infrastructure project in Vietnam, focusing on sustainable development through application of simplified solutions based upon the most appropriate technology.
