About this title


Scaling up Multiple Use Water Services argues that by designing cost-effective multi-purpose infrastructure, MUS can have a positive impact on people’s health and livelihoods. The book analyzes and explains the success factors of MUS, using a framework of accountability for public service delivery. It also examines why there has been resistance against scaling up MUS.

Poor people in developing countries need water for many purposes: for drinking, bathing, irrigating vegetable gardens, and watering livestock. However, responsibility for water services is divided between different government agencies, the WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) and irrigation sub-sectors, with the result that people’s holistic needs are not met. Multiple use water services (MUS) is a participatory water services approach that takes account of poor people’s multiple water needs as a starting point of planning, and the approach has been implemented in at least 22 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. This book should be read by government and aid agency policy makers in the WASH and agriculture sectors, by development field workers, and by academics, researchers and students of international development.
