Towards trans-cultural transparency: Exploring the interface between modern and traditional institutions in water and sanitation supply (TTT)

Lessons From the Field:

Throughout the world, there are disparities in water and sanitation services coverage between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples (UNDP, 2006). Low access to sanitation and water supply in indigenous areas can be attributed to a range of physical and economic challenges but also to cultural and political barriers."
