NEWAH: developing a poverty focused, demand responsive approach
conference contributionposted on 2018-02-12, 15:09 authored by Dinesh Bajracharya, Paul Deverill
This paper is the result of collaboration between WEDC and Nepal Water for Health (NEWAH). Both organisations are involved in a DFID funded research project investigating the role of engineers in meeting demand for water supply and sanitation (Deverill & Smout, 2000). The paper describes how NEWAH is developing a demand responsive, poverty sensitive approach to water supply and sanitation in three of the poorest regions in Nepal. It reflects the point of view that demand responsive approaches are being advocated without taking into account their impact on the poorest members of society.
