Technical Briefs

Originally published individually in Waterlines, the world's only magazine devoted entirely to low-cost water and sanitation, these highly illustrated technical briefs bring together a body of information and guidance which has already proved of great practical help to agencies and fieldworkers.

The collection is available here in pdf format and in print as Running Water, published by ITDG Publishing in association with WELL and available from WEDC. Running Water complements The Worth of Water, the first collection of briefs (nos. 1 to 32).

Prepared by Rod Shaw, Design and Production Editor of WEDC publications, in association with leading authors in the field, each short brief concludes with useful sources of further information. Ian Smout, Director of  WEDC sets the scene for programme and project workers who will find this collection as invaluable as the first.
