Promotional Information

'A very rich and powerful book with great insights on sustainable rural water systems' Rebecca Amukhoye, Country Director, Self Help Africa, Kenya 'A book which brings together the findings of eight detailed PhD studies, all focused on aspects of water and sanitation in one small geographical area of Uganda would be expected to provide some valuable insights, and this book does not disappoint. The geographic focus of the studies is restricted, but it is in some sense representative of the experiences of rural life in many parts of Africa; it also allowed a greater depth of investigation than would have been offered by a similar number of studies scattered across multiple locations. I highly commend this publication to all who are interested in the realities of the rural poor in Africa, and the contributions of in-depth research to the water and sanitation issues which such households and communities face daily.' Richard Carter, Chair, Rural Water Supply Network, and Visiting Professor, Cranfield University, UK
