    Can private sector participation (PSP) in the provision of water supply and sanitation services (WSS) meet essential social and environmental needs? New research by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) suggests that inappropriate forms of private sector involvement that are inadequately regulated are unlikely to be of much value to poorer households or the environment.

    The domestic water sector has focused for many years on benefiting health by improving supply. Can more and better water improve people’s health? Does improved water supply by government and agencies really meet the basic needs of the poor? Or should water be treated as an economic good?

    Transition from subsistence to market economy is not easy. In Papua New Guinea most land is still held under traditional systems of common property resource ownership and a growing cash economy can spark conflict concerning management or ownership issues. Research presented at the annual meeting of the UK Development Studies Association (DSA) examines the institutional limitations, during transition, of traditional ownership systems.

    Forests play an important role in the water cycle, stimulating rainfall, protecting soils from erosion and regulating the flow of water. It is therefore important to preserve forests for water management. Previous efforts to protect forests in Ecuador have relied on controlling land use and excluding local people. These methods often have limited success, because of problems such as corruption and a lack of enforcement. A new approach is to pay people to protect the forests.

    For women in rural China, inheritance rights are often limited by traditional customs which give greater benefits to men. Although this is being challenged by new laws that recognise women’s legal rights, increased access for women to jobs and education, there is a big gap between legislation and reality.Research from
    University College Chester analyses the transfer of resources between
    generations within households and village communities in rural China, with
    particular reference to Dongdatun, a village in the

    Having enough water for food production is a key issue in many countries. As water becomes scarce and food requirements increase, there will be a need to produce more food using less water, to protect the quality of water and the environment, particularly in Africa. To achieve this, it will be necessary to improve women’s access rights to water.Research from
    the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations looks at the
    issues facing poor communities, and especially women, trying to ensure access

    The forced resettlement of river basin communities because of dam construction is a highly controversial process. It can be justified only if plans are implemented to enable resettlers to raise their living standards. They should be involved in all stages of project decision-making including project identification and, if a dam is selected, in project planning, implementation and monitoring.In the past,
    people could express their concerns about dams and resettlement schemes to
    project authorities, but this rarely had much impact. Today, the preferred

    Can the twin developmental goals of administrative decentralisation and improving services for the urban poor be meshed? How can urban authorities and local politicians learn to listen to service users, particularly women? What services should be run by municipalities and what could be managed by neighbourhood or private management?

    Governments and scientists have long regarded the pastoralists’ way of life as a cause of environmental degradation. This belief is rooted in a misunderstanding of the pastoralist way of life and is reflected in national policies on land tenure and resource access in Kenya. The area of land controlled by pastoralists has been steadily reduced, and pastoralists have been encouraged to give up their nomadic way of life and settle, leading to conflict between pastoralist groups and other land users and damage to the environment.
