Poor communities and people are very often able to get themselves access to water and sanitation if they have a sufficient knowledge of the most suitable, cheap and available technologies. But most of them and of their chiefs or representatives, and even many operators or institutions, have not presently the opportunity to know, to find and to obtain easily and free these specific practises and solutions for poor populations.

Les populations les plus démunies ont souvent la capacité d’avoir par eux-mêmes l’accès à l’eau et à l’assainissement si elles ont la connaissance des technologies disponibles les plus adaptées et les plus économiques. Mais la plupart d’entre elles et de leurs représentants, et même beaucoup d’opérateurs et d’institutions, n’ont pas actuellement l’opportunité de savoir, de trouver et d’obtenit facilement et sans frais les pratiques et solutions spécifiques aux populations les plus pauvres.
