The poor performance of many large-scale water and sanitation projects has caused the international community to focus increasingly on small-scale and community-based projects. There remains, however, an urgent need for more research and information on these methods. Water Stories: Expanding Opportunities in Small-Scale Water and Sanitation Projects, a report by the Wilson Center's Navigating Peace Initiative, examines alternatives to large-scale infrastructure projects in the water and sanitation sectors. Funded by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the study explores how lessons learned from small-scale projects can be effectively communicated and replicated worldwide.
