ACCESS TO BASIC INFRASTRUCTURE BY THE URBAN POOR

On February 4, 1990, 38 people from around the world met at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, to discuss how the urban poor in developing countries can gain better access to basic infrastructure services. The six chapters in this book follow the structure of the workshop: background information, existing approaches and inhibiting factors, financial issues, the role of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), the role of government, and the relationship between NGOs and government. Since many issues span several headings, this structure did not attempt a facile compartmentalization of topics; issues under one heading had implications for issues discussed elsewhere.
