 Waterlines is a refereed journal providing a forum for those involved in extending water
 supply, sanitation, hygiene and waste management to all in developing countries.
 Waterlines aims to bridge the gap between research and practice: it encourages papers
 written by researchers for the benefit of practice and those written by practitioners
 to inform research and policy. It highlights information sources and promotes debate
 between different perspectives. Waterlines considers the key challenges facing those in
 the water and sanitation sector – engineers, health professionals, community development
 workers, researchers, policy makers – and suggests how these issues may be tackled using
 affordable, sustainable systems with reference to wider policy and institutional frameworks.
