Case Studies

The SURe Water 4 Africa: Developing LoCS project will produce a series of cases studies as part of the project. The documents aim to provide an insight into how each local government achieved its objectives in improving urban water and sanitation services of a target community, through the help of an integrated and participatory action planning process.
