The book provides examples of cities in Africa and beyond that have already implemented IUWM approaches both in terms of technical and institutional solutions. A number of cities in Latin America have successfully developed innovative solutions that could be inspirational for African cities. Inspired by earlier work by the World Bank in Latin America, this book chose three cities, Nairobi (Kenya), and Mbale and Arua (Uganda), as case studies for a more in-depth analysis of the applicability of IUWM to their water needs.

Upon completion of this study, officials from all three cities expressed interest in implementing practical demonstration projects that would make use of some of the IUWM options presented in the book.
