Abstract

As rates of urbanisation continue to grow, particularly in the developing world, so does the challenge of overcoming barriers to clean water and sanitation. This problem is particularly acute for the growing numbers of urban migrants that move into expanding informal housing settlements, or slums. Despite high initial costs for infrastructure investments, expected returns from expanding access to water and sanitation provide a strong economic justification for investing in infrastructure.
