The objective of this project was to enhance and strengthen the role of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in defining and implementing a new water infrastructure paradigm. This project created the foundation for increased civil society engagement in shifting the water paradigm at national, state, and local levels. This project was intended to provide an “accelerant” to broader NGO consideration of a new water infrastructure paradigm that also included decentralized wastewater treatment, reuse, and integrated water management and green building, more generally. 290 pages.
