Abstract
Through its mandates, global programmes and country interventions, UN-Habitat recognizes lack of access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation as one of the greatest humanitarian, social and developmental challenges affecting the most vulnerable group in the world- the poor. The purpose of this extensive review (Part I) is to provide the basis for defining a pro-poor water and sanitation governance framework and the tools required to improve UN-Habitat efforts in favour of adequate water supply and sanitation services for the urban poor. Accordingly, Part I provides an understanding of the needs and approaches and identifies the strategic parameters for governance in the delivery of water and sanitation services to the urban poor.
