Subject Water, Waste Management, Water Supply, Hygiene and Sanitation
Published since 1982 Waterlines is a refereed journal providing a forum for those involved in extending water supply, sanitation, hygiene and waste management to all in developing countries. Waterlines bridges the gap between research and practice: it encourages papers written by researchers for the benefit of practice and those written by practitioners to inform research and policy. It highlights information sources and promotes debate between different perspectives. Waterlines considers the key challenges facing those in the water and sanitation sector–engineers, health professionals, community development workers, researchers, policy makers–and suggests how these issues may be tackled using affordable, sustainable systems with reference to wider policy and institutional frameworks.
Waterlines contains: Full-length peer-reviewed papers; Shorter ‘articles from the field’; Book reviews, giving a guide to which books are really worth reading; ‘Crossfire’, which deals with contentious issues, argued out between two experts; Webwatch, which guides readers to further reading on the theme; ‘From our water correspondent’ – a regular letter from a water professional dealing with tough problems on the ground.
