Water Supply by Vijita Fernando
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Water is a women's issue. In developing countries the responsibility for water transport and the operation and maintenance of traditional water supply systems lies almost entirely with women. Collecting the daily water needs can take a quarter of a woman's working day and more than a quarter of her daily food intake, however, the workload could decrease significantly with better tools and techniques. The goals of this book are to promote understanding of water supply technologies, water supply management and the project cycle to enable women to make informed choices. The book also contains information on how to assess the suitability of different water supply options and how to find technical and financial assistance.
