Most cities in developing countries grow at a much higher rate than the overall population growth rate. Typically sewerage only exists in a small part of the city, which is surrounded by poorer and more scattered population nuclei. Not only sanitary, but also industrial, pollution problems are present, demanding solutions with good performance and affordable costs for the population and the government. In order to facilitate an active international exchange of knowledge and experience in tackling this situation IAWQ and ABES (the Brazilian Association for Sanitary and Environmental Engineering) organised an international symposium on Technology Transfer entitled "Achieving High Performance at Low Cost in Sanitation and Environmental Control Systems"" that was held alongside the 18th ABES Congress. Over the two days of the symposium a large and predominantly technically oriented audience discussed national and international experience and knowledge relating to how well various programmes succeeded in applying at low cost both conventional and innovative technologies. From the special lectures and contributed papers presented 22 have been selected for these proceedings. They provide valuable insights into a wide range of technologies that are truly appropriate and successful in dealing with municipal and industrial wastewaters.
