Item description for Asian Water Supplies: Reaching the Urban Poor by Arthur C. McIntosh...
In most Asian cities less than 30 percent of the residents enjoy 24-hour water supplies, and low service coverage and intermittent water supplies are the norm. The Asian Development Bank's "Water for All" policy aims to change that and emphasizes, among other things, the increased delivery of water services, conservation of water, increased efficiency, facilitation of the exchange in water sector information and experience, and improving governance of Asian water supplies. This volume lays out the policy and places the program in context of the Asian Development Bank's overarching goal of poverty reduction.
