About the product

This publication is a sequel to the 'International Source Book on Environmentally Sound Technologies for Municipal Solid Waste Management'. The urgent need for information on how to deal with wastewater is clearly shown by the fact that nearly 3 billion people are without adequate sanitation and its impact on health, medical bills, consequent loss of economic productivity and environmental degradation. This publication is not a solution to the complex water and sanitation problems faced by many nations, but it does bring together experiences and ideas from all regions of the world. Planners and managers will find this guide useful as it provides many possibilities and contacts.
