Community-driven Water and Sanitation: The work of the Anjuman Samaji Behmood and the larger Faisalabad context, Pakistan

This case study describes the work of a local NGO, the Anjuman Samaji Behbood (ASB) in Faisalabad, which demonstrated the capacity to support community?built and financed sewers and water supply distribution lines in the informal settlements in which most of Faisalabad's population lives. It also suggests a model by which provision for water, sanitation and drainage could be much improved in Faisalabad, despite the deficiencies in the existing infrastructure and institutions, and the limited availability of local resources. Keywords: urban-poverty
