Provision of basic services for peri-urban areas creates various problems, and often receives less priority than similar work in rural or urban areas. This paper describes some of the characteristics of peri-urban environments and outlines some of the means available for provision of services. Various social, technical, institutional and economic problems that may be encountered when planning projects to provide basic services for peri-urban areas are then identified. Finally, some possible solutions are proposed for overcoming the various problems.
