The paper describes findings of UNDP, World Bank and the USAID-sponsored Water and Sanitation for Health Project (WASH), that are of value to water and sanitation provision for the developing urban and peri-urban areas of South Africa.
It is the view of these agencies that the challenges in water and sanitation provision in developing countries can conceptually be viewed as two closely related agendas, viz : to complete the « old agenda » of providing domestic services, and. to make progress with the « new agenda » of environmentally sustainable development.
The paper abstracts many important findings of the agencies work, and describes their shift in emphasis from single-focus projects to more integrated approaches to the provision of infrastructure and the improvement of health.
It is noted that much evidence is available from case studies about what works in given sets of circumstances and what does not, and why projects and programmes must evolve from, and be tailored to, diverse individual and dynamic circumstances.
