dc.description.abstract This study investigated the value among society of the benefits of improving water and sanitation in informal settlements. The benefits of improving water supply and sanitation have been widely researched, both at a societal and at household level. Why then have the efforts to increase access to services over the last 30 years not achieved the desired results? The value of these benefits, measured through assessments of willingness to pay by the users, is commonly used in investment appraisals as indicators of project viability. en_ZA
