Regional: Preparing a Water Supply and Sanitation Handbook for Southeast Asia

Sovereign Project | 44106-012

Summary

The original book Asian Water Supplies - Reaching the Urban Poor was authored by Arthur McIntosh and published by ADB in 2003. It was reprinted in 2005 and had been out of print since 2007 until a recent reprint of a limited number of books was made by ADB in 2010. The book is the only general source book of its kind for the region and has been used extensively by donors, consultants, and developing country water utilities.

The objective of the TA is to update the book and take into account the changes and developments made in the water supply and sanitation sector over the past 7-8 years. In addition, the book will be expanded and re-written to address sanitation in greater detail and provide a better balance between water supply and sanitation and the direct links between the two, thus covering potable water from source to final disposal.

Description

The original book Asian Water Supplies - Reaching the Urban Poor was authored by Arthur McIntosh and published by ADB in 2003. It was reprinted in 2005 and had been out of print since 2007 until a recent reprint of a limited number of books was made by ADB in 2010.

The objective of the TA is to update the book and take into account the changes and developments made in the water supply and sanitation sector over the past 7-8 years. In addition, the book will be expanded and re-written to address sanitation in greater detail and provide a better balance between water supply and sanitation and the direct links between the two, thus covering potable water from source to final disposal.

The TA will fund the original author as a consultant to (i) research and consult with stakeholders and experts in the region; (ii) write and illustrate the book; (iii) coordination of short-term local consultants engaged to prepare case studies; (iv) manage and facilitate circulation, internal and external peer reviews, and incorporation of comments; and (v) organize a book launch and supporting workshop.
