Rapid urbanisation in developing countries is often coupled with high growth rates of low-income urban settlements. These areas often lack adequate water supply and sanitation services – a central key to social and economic development. This brochure uses the example of Kenya to illustrate why it is so important to integrate the water, urbanisation and demographics sector.
