Title:Effective demand and willingness to pay for water: the case of Kaputula compound, Kabwe
Author:Saasa, Oliver S.ISNI
Geographic term:Zambia
Subject:water management
Abstract:The Project on Integrated Management in Water Resources and Environmental Infrastructural Services is part of the United Nations Centre for Human Settlements (UNCHS-Habitat) strategy to implement the recommendations of Agenda 21 in the area of urban environmental infrastructure and water resource management through research and field application activities. These activities are aimed at providing substantive support in efforts to develop and transfer appropriate technologies as well as the utilization of policies, instruments and tools in the area of integrated water resources and environmental infrastructure management at both the local and national levels. The author participated in an initial, diagnostic phase of the application of this initiative to Kabwe, a town in Zambia, in 1994. A number of management tools were developed that prepared the ground for the second phase described in this report. The unplanned settlement of Kaputula was identified for the purpose of undertaking the pilot phase towards the operationalization of the management tools that emerged from the first phase.
